Antique Map of the Ancient World by Cellarius, 1703

$554.32

About

Antique map titled 'Veteris Orbis Climata ex Strabone'. Interesting map of the ancient world divided into seven climatic zones. The Asian continent is severely truncated and there is no Japan. The map is nicely composed in a semi-circular projection with a ribbon banner-style title and eight wind heads. At top is a wonderful vignette of the mythological wind god Aeolus whose floating island prison constrained the winds with one particularly beastly example of the north wind about to be unleashed. Surrounding the map are wind heads representing; Eurus, the east wind, Zephyrus, the west wind, Notus, the southern wind, Africus, which blows from Africa, Coecia, the northeast wind and Corus, the northwest wind. This map originates from 'Notitia Orbis Antiquae' by Christophorus Cellarius. Frame included. We carefully pack our framed items to ensure safe shipping.
