   M-12076 - Ortelius map of Russia, Japan and ''America or the New World Land'' c. 1598



M-12076: (Image : 13 3/4 x 18 1/4'') ''TARTARIAE SIVE MAGNI CHAMI REGNI...'' Antwerp: Abraham Ortelius, c. 1598 from Theatrum Orbis Terrarum. Verso text French. Very fine engraved map with later hand-coloring. (Ref:  Tooley, Maps and Map-Makers, p. 39; Nebenzahl, The Compass, #8-13 illus; Van den Broecke # 163).


This 16th century map depicts the lands of the north Pacific & Artic with interesting early forms of Japan and California.  The large & prominent ''Strait of Anian'' separates the two continents. The Kingdom of the Great Kahn is described & the large landmass to the east is identified as ''America or the New World Land'' with the California peninsula named, as is the Vermillion Sea, & other places in present-day New Mexico & California. Elegant lettering, flying fish, ships at sea, ''great Sham's Tents'' & highly elaborate strapwork cartouches add strong visual appeal.
