    A early map by Fries that based off of the Ptolemaic work shows the area of the Caspian and central Asia. Reduced from Waldseemuller, it notes many placenames, and includes a depiction of the king enthroned in a vignette in the malformed Caspian Sea. A strong woodblock engraving for this frontier area.

    Condition is fair with the typical worming, and professional restoration, but some printed material lost. Black and white as issued. Image size is 11.5 x 18.5 (inches)
