Gorgeous early example of Mercator's map of Asia from an early Latin edition of his atlas. Includes an ornate cartouche and sailing ship. The map was updated and the cartouche etc. changed in 1606, making these early examples scarce on the market. Based upon Mercator's World Map of 1569. A fine example, with wide margins.
