"Veteris Orbis Climata ex Strabone". Copper etching of a Ptolemaic map initiated by Strabo and most likely published by Christopher Cellarius (1638 - 1707). Ca.1700.
The map, decoratad with a ribbon title and eight winds blowing from all directions, shows the "Old World" in which Strabo defined his assumptions of climatic regions on earth. The map has been carefully and attractively hand colored in recent time.
