RAMUSIO, Giovanni Battista. [The extremely rare first edition of Ramusio's map of Sumatra]
Sumatra. Venice, 1556, FIRST EDITION. Woodcut, printed area 280 x 375mm. Very minor repairs at centrefold, old ink corrections to page numbering.
Sumatra, here still associated with 'Taprobana', published in Ramusio's 'Raccolta di Navigationi et Viaggi'. In the book was an account of the voyage of the Parmentier Brothers, Frenchmen who ran the Portuguese blockade of the East Indies and landed on the Sumatran port of Ticon. Both brothers died of fever and the trade was not too successful, dissuading the French from sending further expeditions. However their findings are included here, making this the first map of any island in South East Asia to be based on actual observation. It is strange, therefore, that there is no attempt to show any part of the Malay Peninsula or Java. This is an example of the rare printing from the first block, which was destroyed by a fire in the printing house after only a year's use. A new block was cut for the second edition, 1565, and prints from this second block are found more frequently. SUAREZ: p.157, & fig.77 (second block illustrated).

RAMUSIO, Giovanni Battista. [Sumatra]
Sumatra. Venice, 1606. Woodcut, printed area 280 x 375mm. Repairs to stitchmarks in centrefold, as usual.
Sumatra, here still associated with 'Taprobana', published in Ramusio's 'Raccolta di Navigationi et Viaggi'. In the book was an account of the voyage of the Parmentier Brothers, Frenchmen who ran the Portuguese blockade of the East Indies and landed on the Sumatran port of Ticon. Both brothers died of fever and the trade was not too successful, dissuading the French from sending further expeditions. However their observations are included here, making this the first map of any island in South East Asia to be based on actual observation. It is strange, therefore, that there is no attempt to show any part of the Malay Peninsula or Java. This example was printed from the second block, cut in 1565 after the first was destroyed by a fire in the printing house of Thomaso Guinti after only a year's use. The 1606 edition is recognisable by evidence of woodworm damage to the printing block and the pagination numbers '371.2º' and '371.3º'. SUAREZ: p.157, & fig.77 (second block illustrated).
