A reissue of Gerard Mercator's detailed map of the regions around Salzburg, Linz and Clagenfurt. Published by Jan Jansson in 1633, this plate has the added imprint of Henricus Hondius on an original Mercator engraving in use since 1585 in the sequence of atlas publications initiated by Mercator. The map is of additional interest as being from the sole English text edition, published in London, with the verso description comprehensible and describing the country. Reinforcement to centrefold weakness but a very nicely coloured and appealing copy.
