Graeciae Universae Secundum Hodiernum ... : A. Ortelius

click here to view a large version in a separate window

An attractive example of one of the most sought after early maps of Greece and the islands. The map appeared in Abraham Ortelius's Theatrum Orbis Terrarum. 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. Over 30 different editions, with text in Latin, French, Dutch, German, Italian, English or Spanish, testify to the popularity and esteem attributed to the work. Attractive bright colouring, especially to the detail on the cartouche. This example has Latin text.
