A mid-16th century map of the East Indies

RUSCELLI, Girolamo.

India Tercera Nuova Tavola.
Venice: Vicenzo Valgrisi, 1561. 186 x 263mm.

A very fine impression of this map of the Malay Peninsula, Sumatra, Java, with Singapore denoted as 'Cinca Pula'.
An enlarged copy of Gastaldi's 'India Tercera Tabula' of 1548, this map is from Ruscelli's 'La Geographi di Claudio Tolomeo'.
A feature of this first state is that no map has a platemark at top: two maps were engraved on the same plate and the resulting sheet halved.
