South East Asia by Ortelius c 1595

INDIAE ORIENTALIS, INSULARUMQVE ADIACENTI: VM TY: PVS

A very attractive and much sought-after late 16th century map black and white map of South-east Asia by Abraham Ortelius from a Latin edition of the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum published by Christophe Plantin in Antwerp in 1595, 1601 or 1609. The Theatrum was the first uniformly-sized, systematic collection of maps ever produced and hence is generally referred to as the first true atlas although the term was not used until 25 years later by Gerard Mercator. The map of Southeast Asia represents a synthesis of the best readily available information on the region from Italian, Portuguese and Spanish sources. Latin text on verso and crossed arrows watermark in eastern sector of the map.

Overall condition very good with wide margins apart from a brown circular stain at the bottom of the centre-fold, measures 35 x 49.5 cm, (plate).

Purchase code: M0348/OUTB ( This map is SOLD, looking for another copy?, please contact us. )
