Salzburg by Ortelius

A beautifully coloured example with a bold, sharp strike of the first issue of the first map of the Jurisdiction of Salzburg to appear in a modern atlas. The engraving is a clever trompe-l’œil, presenting the map as a curling parchment tacked to the borders of a bird’s eye view of the city of Salzburg in the lower right hand corner of the engraving. Both the map and the view are oriented to the west. The map is attributed to Marco Secznagel (1520-1580) of Salzburg.
