Jansson's edition of the "Peutinger Table" shows the Roman roads of the Empire laid out in strip form. Two strips to each of four plates which, if joined would form a scroll-type map of approx 200mms x 4010mms. Konrad Peutinger, a sixteenth-century German humanist after whom the table is named, once owned the only surviving Peutinger manuscript. Jansson's map, like Ortelius' before him, shows eight printed sections on four sheets and extends from north-west Europe, with part of Britain visible, to the Far East. The detail gives roads and posts of c.250AD with some later additions from c.500AD. As well as marking the roads between towns, the distances are also given - a practical and useful tool for the Roman traveller. The "Peutinger Table" on four sheets is rarely found and represents the earliest, diagrammatic road mapping delineated for the known world.
