Ortelius and the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum
The Ortelius Atlas, or the Theatrum orbis Terrarum, was written, expanded, and continuously republished between 1570 and 1624. What one finds here is a map series by the Flemish geographer Abraham Ortelius. Alongside true-to-scale maps, the manuscript contains assembled information about the lands depicted and is illuminated with charming images.
This is a luxury facsimile edition of this famous atlas (perhaps the most beautiful atlas ever made). High quality printing on extra heavy paper. Sheet binding with adhesive strip, issued as original, which means that the maps are printed as a whole, without seam.
