  • (Caucauses - Armenia) Tabula Asiae III

    Based off of the foundational work of Claudius Ptolemy (c. AD 90 - c. AD 168), the Greco-Roman who lived in Alexandria, this work shows us the best of what was understood of the world during the Roman era.

    This edition by Girolamo Ruscelli, the Italian polymath, humanist, editor and cartographer based in Venice, is a good engraving on fine dense paper. Shows the drainage and major placenames, as well as the locations of people groups. This map for Caucauses reaches from southern Russia, down to what was Armenia and portions of neighboring Persia.

    Condition is very good. Image size is 7.5 x 10 (inches)
