  ASIA 
 Far East 

DE JODE, Gerard. [16th century map of the Far East]
Tertiae partis Asiae quæ modernis Indi orientalis dicitur acurata delineatio. Autore Iacobo Castaldo Pedmontano. Gerardus de Iode excudebat. Antwerp, 1593, Latin text edition. 325 x 495mm.
The Far East, with India, the Malay Peninsula (with 'Cingatola'), the Philippines & Moluccas, engraved c.1566, this example from the 1593 edition of De Jode's 'Speculum Orbis Terrae', published two years after his death by his widow and son. This was to be the last edition: after the death of Cornelis De Jode in 1600 the plates were bought by Vrients, then the owner of the Ortelius plates, merely to stop their re-issue. Some of the most famous names in cartography of this period appear on this map: De Jode was the great rival of Ortelius, with whom he had a long-running feud; Gastaldi, De Jode's source, is best known for the appearance of his maps in the 'Lafreri-type' atlases; and Lucas & Jan van Doeticum, the engravers, are renowned for the flair of their work for Waghenaer, Linschoten and Ortelius. KOEMAN: Jod 2.

 Near East 

DE JODE, Gerard. [16th century map of Eastern Europe to Central Asia]
Primæ Partis Asiae... Antwerp, 1593, Latin text edition. Original colour. 300 x 505mm.
The Ukraine, Turkey and Armenia, Cyprus, Palestine & upper Egypt, northern Arabia, Persia, the Caspian Sea with Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan & Afghanistan. Engraved c.1566-1570, this example comes from the 1593 edition of de Jode's 'Speculum Orbis Terrae', published two years after his death by his widow and son. This was to be the last edition: after the death of Cornelis De Jode in 1600 the plates were bought by Vrients, then the owner of the Ortelius plates, merely to stop their re-issue. Some of the most famous names in cartography of this period appear on this map: De Jode was the great rival of Ortelius, with whom he had a long-running feud; Gastaldi, De Jode's source, is best known for his maps in the 'Lafreri-type' atlases; and Lucas & Jan van Doeticum, the engravers, are renowned for the flair of their work for Waghenaer, Linschoten and Ortelius.

  BRITISH ISLES 

DE JODE, Gerard. [Scarce map of the British Isles in fine contemporary colour]
Angliae Scotiae et Hibernie Nova Descriptio. Antwerp, Arnold Coninx for the widow and heirs of Gerard de Jode, 1593. Fine contemporary hand colour. 350 x 495mm. Old folds in margins flattened.
The British Isles, engraved 1570, but this example from the enlarged edition of De Jode's 'Speculum Orbis Terrae' published by his son Cornelis. The outline of the islands is taken from Mercator's eight-sheet map, 1564, but the text comes from the George Lily map of 1546. De Jode's atlas was not a success, losing out to the superior resources and influence of Ortelius, making the De Jode maps harder to find than those of his rival. SHIRLEY: 85 & 119, second state, with "Cum privilegio" added.

From the enlarged edition of De Jode's 'Speculum Orbis Terrae' published by his son Cornelius. De Jode's atlas was not a success, losing out to the superior resources and influence of Ortelius, making the De Jode maps harder to find than those of his rival.

 Northern Italy

Engraved by the van Doeticum brothers, c.1570, this example comes from the 1593 edition of De Jode's 'Speculum Orbis Terrae', published two years after his death by his widow and son. This was to be the last edition: after the death of Cornelis De Jode in 1600 the plates were bought by Vrients, then the owner of the Ortelius plates, merely to stop their re-issue. KOEMAN: Jod 2.

 France 

DE JODE, Gerard. [A scarce 16th century map of France]
Nova Totius Galliæ Descriptio. Carta Galicana. Antwerp, 1578, First Edition. 350 x 505mm. Lower centerfold reinforced , otherwise a very fine example.
An uncommon map of France, engraved by brothers Lucas and Jan van Doeticum and published in the first edition of de Jode's 'Speculum Orbis Terrarum'. Despite being a map of France it shows the Low Countries, Switzerland and Germany east to the Rhine, Savoy and northern Italy with the course of the Po river. It is believed that de Jode had his maps ready for publication in the early 1570s but could not get a license, apparently because of interference by Ortelius, who wanted to protect his own 10-year privilege for the 'Theatrum'. By the time that expired in 1579 it was to late for De Jode to compete with Ortelius: his 'Speculum' sold poorly, as did the second, expanded edition of 1593, published by Gerard's widow and sons. After 1600 the plates were bought by Jan Baptiste Vrients, who also acquired the Ortelius rights; De Jode's maps were never printed again. Thus all editions of the De Jode maps are scarce.

 Germany 

DE JODE, Gerard. [Rare maps of Pomerania and Diethmarchen]
Pomeraniae utriusq Continentis ... [on sheet with] Thietmarsorum Simbricae Schersonesi Populorum ... Antwerp, Cornelis de Jode, 1593. Latin text edition. Two plates on one sheet, 160 x 450mm & 145 x 225mm. Repairs to left and right margins, otherwise a very fine example.
Maps of Pomerania after Munster and Diethmarchen after Peter Boekel. First published 1578 in Gerard de Jode's 'Speculum Orbis Terrae', the maps were originally on one plate, with a map of Prussia bottom right. For the second edition, published by Gerard's death by his widow and son Cornelis, the plate was cut and the Prussia replaced by a full-page plate. This edition was to be the last: after the death of Cornelis in 1600 the plates were bought by Vrients, then the owner of the Ortelius plates, merely to suppress them. KOEMAN: Jod 2.
