Title : Tabula VI Asiae..
Map maker : FRIES, Lorenz..
Date : Strasbourg, 1525.
Size : 13.0 x 18.9 inches. / 33.0 x 48.0 cm.
Colouring : In original o/l colours.

Description :A nice example of the 1525 edition of Lorenz Fries map of the Arabian Peninsula, Persian Gulf and adjoining regions.
An important early map of the Middle East, from the 1525 edition of Lorenz Fries’ 'Geographia', based upon the works of Claudius Ptolemy. Fries originally intended for the maps to be included in a new 'Chronica Mundi' being written by Martin Waldseemüller, whose death around 1520 caused the project to be shelved.
Instead, Fries used his woodcut maps to publish a smaller sized edition of Waldseemüller's 'Geographia', which was first published in Strasbourg by Johannes Gruninger in 1522.

The 1522 edition of Fries' work is very rare, suggesting that the work was not commercially successful. In 1525, an improved edition was issued, with a re-edit of the text by Wilibald Pirkheimer, from the notes of Johannes Regiomontanus. After Grüninger's death in 1531, the business was continued by his son Christoph, who seems to have sold the materials for the Ptolemy to two Lyon publishers, the brothers Melchior and Gaspar Trechsel, who published a joint edition in 1535, before Gaspar Trechsel published an edition in his own right in 1541.
Text vice versa.
