Description

Striking example of Magini's map of Asia, based upon Ortelius' map of 1570, from an early edition of Magini's Geographiae Universae tum Veteris tum Novae Absolutissimum.

Fascinating depiction of Japan. No sign of the Korean Peninsula. Includes and apocryphal region south of Nova Guinea that is notedas Terrae Incognita Australis, separated from Nova Guinea by a narrow channel.
