1593 De Jode - Primae Partis Asiae accurata delineatio…[shows Cyprus]
Rare 1593 de Jode map of the Black and Caspian Seas, with the eastern Mediterranean and a prominent Cyprus
Primae Partis Asiae accurata delineatio...
Cornelius de Jode
30 x 54 cm (11.8 x 21.3 in)
De Jode's rare map presenting the Black and Caspian Seas, the Mediterranean in the west, and Afghanistan and Central Asia in the East. Cyprus is prominently shown in the eastern Mediterranean.
De Jode was a competitor of Ortelius. His atlas Speculum Orbis Terrarum did not enjoy the same commercial success as Ortelius, despite many modern commentators alleging the superiority of many of De Jode's efforts. Consequently, today his maps are very rare and highly desirable.
Verso text: Latin. Engraved by the van Deutecum brothers, based upon an earlier map by Gastaldi.
Very good condition. Slightly reduced margins but still ample for framing. Very minor margin toning.
Al-Qasimi p. 31.
