Antique Map of China 1584 by Historic Urban Plans

This is the first European printed map of China and, as such, a fascinating view of the East from the perspective of one of the world's finest map-makers, Abraham Ortelius. Published in his 1584 atlas, Theatrum Orbis Terraum, Ortelius based his map on the work of Jesuit Jorge de Barbuda. The vibrant colors highlight a tremendous level of detail for the period, including cities and settlements, lakes, mountain and the Great Wall.  Now reprinted and ideal for framing!
