Title : Asiae Nova Descriptio..
Map maker : ORTELIUS, A..
Date : Antwerp, 1579.
Size : 14.6 x 19.3 inches. / 37.0 x 49.0 cm.
Colouring : Coloured.

Description :Beautifully coloured map of Asia from the 1579 edition of OrteliusíTheatrum Orbis Terrarum, the first modern atlas of the world. The map is based upon Ortelius's wall map of Asia, which in turn draws its cartographic data from Gastaldi and Albufeda. A marvelous mis-projection of Japan and Southeast Asia. Very distinct Northeast Passage. Highly decorative map with splendidly engraved sailing ships, wonderful cartouche, and other embellishments.
The map is one of the most influential maps of the 16th and early 17th Centuries, having had a profound impact on contemporary Asian Cartography.

The 1579 edition was the first edition to be printed by the famous printing and publishing house of Christopher Plantin, the Officina Plantiniana, well-known for its high quality printing and publishing. In this auction, also the other continents from the 1579 edition, Africa (lot 94762), America (lot 94761), and Europe (lot 94764) are offered, as well as the portrait of Ortelius (lot 94765) issued for the first time in 1579.

Broecke, Ortelius Atlas maps, 7.
