Asia recens summa cura delineata

In 1630 Henricus Hondius and Jan Jansson undertook a major revision of the Mercator Atlas in response to fierce competition with the Blaeu family. This map is based on the 1623 map of Asia by Henricus' brother (Jodocus), but without the decorative panels.The map extends from the Arabian peninsula through the East Indies. Two hunters flank the title cartouche and the map is embellished with animals, ships and sea creatures. -- Dealer's description.
