Title : Secundae partis Asiae, typus. .
Map maker : DE JODE, C..
Date : Antwerp, 1578.
Size : 15.5 x 21.5 inches. / 39.4 x 54.6 cm.
Colouring : Uncolored

Description :Rare first edition of De Jode's map of Arabia and southern Persia after Gastaldi.
In 1578 Gerard de Jode published his atlas "Speculum Orbis Terrarum", created to compete with the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum published in 1570 by Abraham Ortelius. Both examples serve as the earliest modern atlases of the World. Published eight years after the Theatrum, however, de Jode's example could not compete with the sales its predecessor.
Only about a dozen examples of his Speculum have survived, making the maps within this 1578 edition especially rare. De Jode's son Cornelis published another version of the atlas in 1593, titled "Speculum Orbis Terrae".
It too did not have high records of sales, and it was never reissued.

Despite the fact that Ortelius' atlases sold more copies, many of de Jode's maps are seen as superior to those of his competition, both in terms of detail and style. In this example, the many regions of the Middle East are portrayed in fine detail. Saudi Arabia is fairly central to the map, with the Nile, Northern Africa, Cairo and part of Ethiopia to the left.
The map also spans to show part of modern day Afghanistan, Iraq, Kuwait, Iran (formerly known as Persia), Pakistan and the western portion of India. Towards the top of Arabia we see the countries of Israel and Lebanon. In the lower portion is Sudan and Somalia.
The map has many fine details. We see the prominent placement of a compass rose and a title cartouche. The cartouche is simple and elegant, possessing an almost architectural quality.
Also included are geographical elements such as rivers, seas and oceans, and hills.
Condition : Some very light outer marginal discolouration. Dark impression. Latin text on verso.

ID: 100009
