WÄLDSEEMÜLLER, Martin. [The 16th Century Wäldseemüller/Fries map of 'Modern' Turkey]
Tabu. Nova Asiae Mi. Lyon, 1535. Coloured woodcut, printed area 300 x 380mm.
The Fries reduction of Wäldseemüller's map of 'modern' Turkey, including Cyprus. Originally intended not for a Ptolemy edition but for a new 'Chronica mundi' being written by Wäldseemüller, his death c.1520 caused the project to be shelved, so the reduced woodcuts were used to publish a smaller sized and so cheaper edition of the 'Geography'. On verso is a text surrounded by woodcut columnar decorations.
