Ormus : Anonymous / P. Bertius

click here to view a large version in a separate window

At the end of the 16th Century pocket atlases began to appear in the marketplace, thus making geography available to a wider readership. Often using reduced versions of the work of the renowned cartographer Abraham Ortelius, they acquired great popularity on the continent of Europe. Charmingly engraved, this example from the Bertius series has German text to the verso. Petrus Bertius went on to become Cosmographer to Louis XIII in 1618. Although paper is slightly age-toned with light staining to the top, this remains a very attractive example of the first map to focus on one of the world's most important regions.
