A scarce and attractive example of this distinctive map from the sole English text edition of Ortelius' Theatrum.' Abraham Ortelius's "Theatrum ..." appeared in a number of continental language editions but only one with text in English. When published in London, it was regarded as amongst the most splendid books to be produced in the country and it is thought that only about 500 copies were printed. The map was probably prepared by Johannes Florianus, whose signature appears on the plate, and covers the region of East Frisia around Emden.
