ANGLIAE SCOTIAE ET HIBERNIAE SIVE BRITANNICAR ..

Code: M3485

Cartographer: Ortelius Abraham

Date: 1570 Antwerp

Size: 35*50 cms

Attractive classic sixteenth century map of the British Isles by Ortelius after Mercators geography.

This is one of the earliest states of Ortelius' map from 'Theatrum Orbis Terrarum'.

Flemish influence, or possibly a mistranslation, is evident in the rendering of some of the place names, e.g. Ormyskyrk for Ormskirk, Dantre for Daventry, and the omission of the relatively important Peterborough. Distinguished by a sophisticated style of engraving, the map is embellished with two ornate strapwork cartouches, the royal coat of arms of the UK, dividers and distance scale and five sailing ships. Latin text on verso.

Minor reinforcement of rear of bottom of centrefold. Invisible.

Good hand colour.

Very good condition for this corbnerstone map of any collection of maps of the British Isles.

Ref: Shirley (MCC-94) #86, pl. 42; Van den Broecke #16.
