An early and decorative map of Provence that follows closely Pierre-Jean Bompar's 1591 manuscript map of the region. Ortelius' map was published in editions of the "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum" from 1575 - this is a 1612 Spanish text edition. The atlas achieved instant fame as "the world's first regularly produced atlas" (Skelton), being the first atlas with maps prepared to a uniform format. It was also an immediate commercial success, being reprinted four times in 1570, the first year of its publication. The atlas was frequently reprinted, with many of the maps re-engraved and up-dated, and new maps were added so that later editions contained up to 163 map sheets. The maps themselves are finely engraved, often very decorative and are generally found with text on the reverse. A detailed and attractive map of a sought-after area.
