Description

Fine early map of Arabian peninsula, being one of the earliest modern maps of the region.
Girolamo Ruscelli first published the map in his "La Geographi di Claudio Tolomeo" (Venice, 1561), with the present example being from the 1598 edition of the work. In 1574 a new plate was used which lasted until the final edition of 1599.
In this final edition the plate includes a sea monster. While the earlier editions appear on the market with some frequency, this final edition is much scarcer than its predecessors.
