Asia by A. Thevet

According to Burden, this edition is very rare, he only located six examples. Compared with the 1575 edition, there are no changes to the cartography of the map, only the typography.

André Thevet was a Franciscan monk who travelled extensively in Europe and made a reputed short journey to South America. Upon his return he records that he sailed along the eastern coast of North America. The experiences he recals of the New World have attracted much criticism from both his contemporaries and recent historians for their inaccuracy. However, one person seemed impressed, the King of France, Henry III, who bestowed him the honour of Royal Cosmographer.
