16th century Dutch map of Denmark

ORTELIUS, Abraham.

Daniae Regni Typus.
Antwerp: Christoph Plantin, 1574, Latin edition. Coloured, with gold highlights. 315 x 410mm.

Ortelius's map of Denmark in full double page format, uncommon because it was replaced in 1581 by a half-plate map. This example has the pagination of the 1579 edition written over the number of the 1574 edition: the publishers were obviously using up the unused sheets of the earlier edition.
