Date: 1564 (Published) Venice

This fine copperplate engraving is an expanded edition from Giacomo Gastaldi’s atlas of 1548. The map extends from west of the Gujarat peninsula eastward to Bengal and south as far as northern Ceylon (“Ceilam”). The shape of the Indian peninsula is exaggeratedly narrow. Towns on the west coast are more extensively identified. The sea is shaded with black dots; hills and rivers are schematic. On the verso, Latin text describes local kingdoms, spices such as ginger and pepper, and aspects of society, including Brahmins and Christians.

Condition: Very good condition with slight discoloration at the centerfold.
