Anglia Scotia Et Hibernia : G. Mercator / J. Hondius

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A reduced-size version of the Mercator/Hondius map of the British Isles, from the pocket-sized atlas, "Atlas Minor Gerardi Mercatoris A I Hondio ...". Such was the success of the Mercator/Hondius atlas, that the publishers decided a pocket-sized version of the work would also be appropriate. The "Atlas Minor" first appeared in 1607 with later editions being published until 1621. This particular example of the map comes from a French text edition. The map displays the distinctive Mercator/Hondius style in miniature with boldly engraved title surrounds and cursive lettering in the surrounding seas. This example, with minor marginal reinforcements is distinguished by attractive original colour - an unusual feature.
