MAP - Russia, Eastern Europe. Ortelius

Lot 0137 Details

Description
Russia, Eastern Europe & Central Asia. Abraham Ortelius, Russiae, Moscoviae et Tartariae Descriptio. Auctore Antonio Ienkensono Anglo..., 1581 (published). Hand Color. Fascinating map of Russia and the former Soviet republics from the surveys of the English merchant and adventurer, Anthony Jenkinson, in 1562. Jenkinson was leader of the Muscovy Company's first expedition to Russia and the first European to travel widely throughout the region. Ortelius' map replicates much of the detail and decoration found on the original Jenkinson map complete with extensive notations, illustrations of Cossacks, camels, encampments, armies, and a curious burial scene where the dead are hung from trees. A vignette of Ivan the Terrible appears at top left. French text on verso, published in 1581.

LITERATURE: Van den Broecke #162.
Condition
A nice impression on a clean, bright sheet with minor show-through of text on verso and professionally repaired centerfold separations at top and bottom. Grade: A
