Excellent antique map of the “Low countries” of France. From Ortelius’ magnificent atlas, the “Theatrum Orbis Terrarum”, this is an early map of Artois. It includes the popular coastal towns of Boulogne and Estaples. The atlas in which this map appeared achieved instant fame as “the world’s first regularly produced atlas”, being the first atlas with maps prepared to a uniform format. It was also an immediate commercial success, being reprinted four times in 1570. The atlas was frequently reprinted up to 1612, with many of the maps re-engraved and up-dated, and new maps added so that later editions contained up to 163 map sheets. The maps themselves are finely engraved, often very decorative and generally found with text on the reverse. Overall size of frame is approx 21″ x 25″. Now, a bit of fine print. Increases will be between 4.9% and 11.9%. The item “Atrebatum Regio Nis Vera Descriptio Antique France Map” is in sale since Thursday, October 31, 2019.
