Ortelius’ Germany

Very detailed map of Germany, with Bohemia specifically identified.

Ortelius shows Germany as if it was one single country… some 300 years before its unification in 1871.

Beautiful cartouche.

Based on Christiaan Sgrothen (1520-1608) map of Germany, published in 9 sheets in 1565. This map was replaced by Ortelius in 1602.
