1375 CRESQUE'S CATALAN ATLAS MAP WESTERN ASIA
1375 CRESQUE'S CATALAN ATLAS MAP WESTERN ASIA
This utterly beautiful map of western Asia is one of the finest maps to come from the Majorcan cartographic school of the fourteenth century. Most probably produced in 1375 (the date that appears on the perpetual calendar accompanying the maps) and attributed, though without certainty, to Cresques Abraham. Condition Note: Because of how fragile the original piece is, it was not possible to completely flatten it prior to photographing and digitizing. The result is that a few minor areas are somewhat out of focus on the prints made from that negative. The vast majority of the map is exceptionally sharp.
