Universalis Tabula Iuxta Ptolemaeumr : E. Sudlow

click here to view a large version in a separate window

An attractive and clearly engraved map of the world known to the ancients. As the title states 'An Universal or general Chart Or Map of the intire terraqueous Globe as far as the same was known or dicover'd down to the middle of the second Century of the Christian Aera ...' The map was engraved by Edward Sudlow for Adam Anderson's "History of Commerce" printed at the Logographic Press - a short-lived but innovative printing process designed to speed up print setting by using pre-formed words rather than just individual letters. This map has upper and lower margins added for protection.
