(Russia-Georgia) Tabula Asiae II


  • ~Catalog 62~
  • (Caucauses - Southern Russia) Tabula Asiae II

    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 southern Russia spans the northern portions of the Caucauses, the Sea of Azov, and nearby southern Georgia.

    Condition is good, with some old centerfold repairs, and minor loss. Image size is 7.5 x 10 (inches)
