(India - Tibet - Kyrgystan - Kazakhstan ) Tabula Asiae VIII


  • ~Catalog 62~
  • (Northern India- Tibet- Kyrgystan- Kazakhstan- China) Tabula Asiae VIII

    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 spans a vast stretch of this portion of Asia, from northern India and Tibet, up through Kyrgstan and its neighbors to Kazakhstan and beyond.

    Condition is good with some minor loss to the centerfold. Image size is 7.5 x 10 (inches)
