A New Map Of Ancient Asia : E. Wells

click here to view a large version in a separate window

An attractive example of an increasingly scarce and distinctive map. Engraved by Michael Burghers, engraver to the University of Oxford, the map appeared in Edward Wells atlas "A New Sett of Maps both of Ancient and Present Geography ..." dedicated, as many of the maps are, to the eleven year old William Duke of Gloucester, student at Christchurch Oxford, under Wells. This interesting map shows a contemporary knowledge of the outline of the whole continent but is doted with notations regarding the ancient cartographic concepts of Ptolemy and the"Ancients". The continent is defined according to classical kingdoms such as Scythia, Parthia and so on.
