Illyricum : A. Ortelius

click here to view a large version in a separate window

Ortelius is best known for the maps in the "Theatrum ..." which represented the most up-to-date records of the world as known around 1570. However his personal interest in the classical world led him to produce a series of maps illustrating historical legends and describing those parts of Europe and the Mediterranean world as known in ancient times. Ortelius' atlas maps appeared in a number of editions with verso text in a variety of different European languages, describing the area shown with its ancient history. This example is of added interest as the only English text edition. From the first systematic "modern" atlas, a detailed map of the coastal region of Dalmatia. A panel of text describes the sources of the map, after Sambucus and Hirschvogel.
