Flandria : A. Ortelius

click here to view a large version in a separate window

From Ortelius's renowned atlas, the first modern atlas of the world, this dramatically presented map is thought to have been prepared and engraved by Gerard Mercator although published by Ortelius. A most attractive map of Flanders set in an oval frame, with elaborate strapwork corners, plus raging seas, fighting ships and sea monsters.. A female costume figure supports a lion coat of arms. Van den Broecke notes that there were only 75 copies of this particular edition printed; the plate appeared in two versions; this is version A, the earlier, and is identified by the 4 centred lines on the verso, in Latin text.
