Map maker : SOLINUS, C.J..
Date : Basel, 1538.
Size : 3.5 x 3.7 inches. / 8.8 x 9.4 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured.

Description :Early map of part of Russia, centered on Smolensk, Riga, Moscow and other major cities are mentioned, also the rivers Dvina, Volga, engraved by Sebastian Münster. From Polyhistor, rerum toto orbe memorabilium thesaurus.. a very rare book containing the works of Gaius Julius Solinus.
Who was a Latin grammarian and compiler, probably flourished during the first half of the 3rd century. He was the author of De mirabilibus mundi ('The wonders of the world') which mostly circulated under the title Collectanea rerum memorabilium ('Collection of Curiosities'), and the work is indeed a description of curiosities in a chorographical framework. The greater part is taken from Pliny's Natural History and the geography of Pomponius Mela.
A greatly revised version of his original text was made, perhaps it is now thought by Solinus himself. This version conatins a letter that Solinus wrote as an introduction to the work which gives the work the title Polyhistor ('multi-descriptive'). Both versions of the work circulated widely.
With a description in Latin of the western part of Russia.

Condition : Wood block printed map in text sheet. Size of paper 315x200mm. Good impression.
