1706 Veteris Orbis Climata ex Strabo

Depicts Europe, Asia, and northern Africa. Surrounded by seven wind heads. At the northern polar caps is a wonderful allegorical vignette of the mythological wind god Aiolos whose floating prison island of Aiolia constrained the storm sprits Anemoi Thuellai and Aellai. Here Aiolos is shows restraining the North Wind, depicted as a winged dog, with a chain. Cartographically this map corresponds with the late 17th century view of the world. Japan, Korea and Kamtschaka are absent and the Caspian Sea is drawn larger east-west than north-south.
