Suecia Et Norvegia Cum Confiniis : G. Mercator

click here to view a large version in a separate window

An attractive example of one of the first maps of all Scandinavia and certainly one of the most detailed. Covering all Norway, Finland and Sweden, except the southern tip of Gotia, the Baltic, and Gulfs of Finland and Bothnia, the map has an elaborate titlepiece at top left and the engraved signature of Mercator, the most influential cartographer of that, and arguably, any subsequent period. This well coloured example is from a Latin text issue of "Atlas".
