16th century miniature copper engraved map of Asia without Korea, a very large New Guinea and strangely formed Japan.

Dimensions: image 7,5 x 10,5 cm on page of 12,5 x 17 cm

Condition: Very good condition. Slight browning and some light watermarks in the margins (outside of the image). Otherwise very clean and strong paper, dark print, ample margins. Hand coloured. Latin text on reverse side.

Lovely miniature version of the Ortelius map of Asia, published in ´Epitome Theatri Orteliani´in Antwerp, by Chr. Plantin for Filips Galle. Date of the first edition: 1588 Date of this map: 1589
