Title : Tartariae sive Magni Chami Imperium..
Map maker : ORTELIUS, A..
Date : Antwerp, 1580.
Size : 15.0 x 19.7 inches. / 38.2 x 50.0 cm.
Colouring : In attractive strong original colours.

Description :This is a very early depiction of the northern Pacific, with the first mapping of Northwest Coast of America and probably the first map to name California 'C. Califormio' and showing the name 'Sierra nevada' along the west coast.
Its main feature is the STRETTO DI ANIAN. This increased the public awareness of the 1561 Giacomo Gastaldi theory of a strait between the continents of Asia and America.
At its southern entrance an enlarged Japan dominates, below which a note states that a large amount of the information in Asia emanates from the writings of Marco Polo.
The west coast of North America differs from his map of America in that the peninsula is broader, some different names appear, and others are lacking.

Condition : Paper very slightly age-toned. Dark impression, printed on heavy paper. Very good condition.

ID: 28315
