Regionum Urbium Et Fluminum ..Meurs region : J. Mercator

An uncommon sheet with two maps printed together the only map known to have been done by Johannes Mercator. The first is a general map of the lower reaches of the Rhine, Meuse and Rhoer; the second, a detailed map of the County of Meurs drawn by Johannes Mercator, grandson of the great Gerard Mercator. Curiously the map, with the imprint "Duysburgi PerJoh. Mercatorem ..." did not appear in editions published by the Mercator family, only in those after publication was taken over by Jodocus Hondius - the "Duysburg ..." address suggests that the plate was probably prepared earlier, when publication of the atlas took place there, but was never actually used. Margins lightly stained and negligible centrefold defect, nevertheless acceptable.
