Fine example of Gastaldi's map of Cyprus, the Holy Land, Syria and neighboring regions, based upon the work of Claudius Ptolemy.

Giacomo Gastaldi's Atlas of 1548 has been called the most comprehensive atlas produced between Martin Waldseemüller's Geographiae of 1513, and the Abraham Ortelius Theatrum of 1570. Gastaldi's maps were beautifully engraved on copper, marking a turning point in the history of cartography. From that point forward, the majority of cartographic works used this medium. As it was a harder material than wood it gave the engraver the ability to render more detail. Gastaldi sought the most up-to-date geographical information available and are among the earliest obtainable maps for regional collectors.

Karrow, R.W. (16 c.) 30/44; Laor, E. #619.
