  • Asia Secunda Pars Terre In Forma Pegasus

    Heinrick Bunting published a Biblically based travel book of the known world and included some interesting novelty maps. Here, he depicts Asia in the form of the mythical winged horse Pegasus. The mouth and head are Turkey, the front legs dangle as Arabia, and the torso becomes "Babylon" and "Persia". One of the more sought after cartographic novelties, and a stunning image.

    Condition is good with professional restoration to the margins, and some restored loss to the image in the upper left corner. Attractively hand colored. Image size is 11.25 x 14 (inches).
