1665 Kircher Map of South Asia -- Tabula Geographica Hydrophylacium Asiae Majoris Exhibens, quo
Item Details
Description
  • Title: 1665 Kircher Map of South Asia -- Tabula Geographica Hydrophylacium Asiae Majoris Exhibens, quo Omnia Flumina sive Proxime sive Remote per Occultos Maeandros Originem Suam Sortiuntur
  • Cartographer: A Kircher
  • Year / Place: 1665, Amsterdam
  • Map Dimension (in.): 13.4 X 16.1 in.

    This is a rather unusual map of southern Asia from the Arabian peninsula to India to the islands of southeast Asia including the Philippines, extending to north to the Caspian Sea. The map has limited political detail with only regions and countries named, plus the principal rivers, lakes and mountains. A huge subterranean lake in the area of Nepal and Tibet is the principle source for most of the rivers in Asia. India and much of southeast Asia is miss-shaped. The Jesuit scholar Athanasius Kircher issued this map and he was one of the first compilers of semi-scientific knowledge about the physical features of the world. Decorative title cartouche features angels or putti, and Neptune. From Kircher's Mundus Subterraneus.
