Description

Nice example of Mercator's map of Asia, Minor and Cyprus, from Mercator's edition of Ptolemy's Geographia, first published in 1578 and republished in Amsterdam beginning in 1695.

Includes a Sea Monster, cartouche and a detailed treatment of the region.

Gerard Mercator published his edition of Ptolemy‚Äôs maps as what he intended as a companion to his Atlas of the Modern World. Beginning with the 1695 edition, the plates were re-worked, substituting a new cartouche within the map, containing a second title.
