recent arrival
Ortelius's map of Ancient Britain was originally produced on two sheets for the "Parergon" and was reduced to a more convenient format in one sheet in 1595 with north orientated to the right. Decorated with sailing ships, detail includes a pictorial depiction of Hadrian's wall and Roman town names. Jan Wierix is credited as the engraver of this attractive map reflecting Ortelius's own interests as historian and cartographer.
