A Newe Mape Of Tartary ... : J. Speed

click here to view a large version in a separate window

The only carte-a-figures map of central and northern Asia was published in the "Prospect Of The Most Famous Parts Of The World" - the first world atlas produced in England. John Speed's map is based on Dutch originals but has the addition of side panels depicting costumed figures, while above are vignettes of the Silk Road cities of Astrakhan, Samarkand and Cambalu, with an illustration of a "house in Nova Zemla". The Great Wall of China is clearly seen, and the interior is heavily annotated. An attractive example with delicate hand-colour and with English text on the reverse describing this exotic and wild region. A very attractive example with just minor reinforcement to centrefold wear and marginal tears.
