16th century map of Poland and Lithuania

ORTELIUS, Abraham.

Poloniae, Lithuaniaeq. Descriptio. Auctore Wenceslao Godreccio; et correctore Andrea Pograbio PIlsnensi.
Antwerp: 1601, Latin edition. Coloured. 375 x 490mm.

This is an example of the second map of Poland issued in the 'Theatrum Orbis Terrarum'. Like the first it is based on a map by Vacovas Godreckis (the only known example was lost in 1945), but this version features corrections by Polish physician Andrzej Pograbski, mainly in the eastern half.
This plate was introduced to the atlas in 1595, after the first plate developed cracks that were too severe to repair.
