Title : [Antiochus Soter]..
Map maker : MÜNSTER, S..
Date : Basle 1575 - 1580.
Size : 11.0 x 7.5 inches. / 28.0 x 19.0 cm.

Description :On recto an early representation of Antiochus Soter and his army of elephants. The nickname Soter (savior) was given him after his victory over the Gauls which threatened Anatolia, called by historians the 'victory of the elephants.' Antiochus I was of Greek heritage, and was himself one of the greatest builders of Greek-style cities. Mention is made in the Bible of Antiochus, especially in the books of the Maccabees. However, references to Antiochus in many other works are difficult to sort out as there were several kings named Antiochus, and often co-ruled for a time.
On verso a text about Gallogrecia.
From a French text edition of his Cosmographia, that great compendium of Renaissance knowledge. With contemp. Annotation in brown ink. In 1575 Sebastian Münster's Cosmographia was translated into French and published in Paris by François de Belle-Forest.
Condition : Woodblock print with letter press. Paper browned and age-toned. Good impression.
