ORTELIUS, Abraham. [Early edition of Ortelius's classic map of Ireland]
Eryn. Hiberniae Britannicae Insulae, Nova Descriptio. Irlandt. Antwerp: Christoph Plantin, 1574, Latin edition. Coloured, with gold highlights. 355 x 480mm.
An early example of this decorative antique map of Ireland, orientated with north to the right. The map first appeared in an 'Additamentum' in 1573 then in the full 'Theatrum' later the same year. This has the pagination '10' of a Theatrum of the following year partially erased and the pagination of 1579 written over it. The publishers were obviously using up the unused sheets of the earlier edition. VAN DER BROECKE: 22.

Eryn. Hiberniae Britannicae Insulae, Nova Descriptio. Irlandt. Antwerp: Plantin, 1598, Dutch edition. Original colour. 360 x 485mm. Restoration at centre fold.
A classic collector's map of Ireland published in the 'Theatrum Orbis Terrarum', regarded as the first modern atlas. The map was oriented with north to the right so that the map fitted the sheet of paper, as it predates the convention of north to the top. The colouring of this example is particularly good. VAN DER BROECKE: 22.
