A full page early map of Europe with a small woodcut map of Constantinople set in a page of German text on the verso. This attractive map was published in Rauw's Cosmography and includes a scale of German miles beneath the title cartouche and an encampment is pictured in Tartaria. Matthias Quad's output is perhaps greater than he has in the past been credited with. He was an important figure in Cologne, publishing under a number of pseudonyms as well as his own name, during this early period and would certainly have come under the influence of Frans Hogenberg who engraved the maps for Ortelius' "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum" and who, with Georg Braun, was responsible for the great town-book, "Civitates Orbis Terrarum". Quad helped to establish Cologne as the centre of German map production and consequently established the city's important role in terms of European cartography at this time.
