ORTELIUS, Abraham.
Theatrum Orbis Terrarum... Antwerp: Christopher Plantin, 1584, Latin edition. Folio, contemporary blind-stamped vellum & title label, worn; engr. title, portrait of Ortelius, 110 maps, as called for.
A fine example of this important atlas. First published in 1570, Ortelius' 'Theatrum' was the first regularly produced atlas, and the first attempt to compile the best available maps in a uniform format. The first edition contained 53 maps, but over the years more maps were engraved, and this edition contains over twice as many. For further details please contact us. Koeman: Ort 21.
