Asia wie es jetziger zeit nach den fuernemesten Herrschafften abgetheilet und beschriben ist

After Munster's death in 1552, Sebastian Henricpetri took on the task of publishing several new editions of the Cosmographia between 1588 and 1628. He produced several new maps for the atlas, including the present example. The map is a reduction of Ortelius's Asiae nova descriptio from his Theatrum, which in turn was based on Ortelius's wall map of 1567. -- Dealer's description.
