Description

Sylvanus' map of the Armenia, the Causus Mountains and the rgion between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea and east of the Euphrates River, is one of the earliest obtainable maps of the region and the first printed in two colors.

The map appeared in Sylvanus' Claudii Ptholemaei Alexandrini liber Geographicae . . ., publish in Venice in 1511. The Sylvanus edition of Ptolemy is one of the earliest to include maps with modern geographical updates. The map has been printed on two leaves, which have here been rejoined and backed with Japan paper on the verso. A nice example of a map which very rarely appears on the market.
