Description:

Finely colored example of Sebastian Munster's second map of Asia, first published in 1588.

The map is significantly updated from Munster's first map of Asia, which was published in 1540 and, when issued, was the first printed map of the Asian Continent. The present map is heavily influenced by Ortelius' map of 1570 and follows the map with respect to many of its details and the map's projection.
