Beautiful copperplate-engraved antique map of the Artois region in northwestern France, in original hand color, published by Abraham Ortelius more than 430 years ago. This map is titled Artois. Iacobo Surhonio Montano Auctore, and the image area measures 37.5 x 48.3 [14¾" x 19"]. The cartography is based on an unpublished manuscript by the Flemish cartographer and silversmith Jacques de Surhon, and the map was issued in the 1588 Spanish edition of Ortelius’ Theatrum Orbis Terrarum. There are many cities, towns, and place names, including Calais, St. Omer, Arras, Renty, and Monstreul, as well as a large decorative title cartouche, and two other cartouches with a dedication and a mileage scale. The map is in very good condition, with a vertical center fold, as issued. The paper has toned slightly, and there are a couple of tiny holes. Please see the scans and feel free to ask any questions. There is letterpress text on the reverse side, with a large, hand colored initial cap. The last line of the text, centered like the three lines above it is bien declarada de Guicciardino. Some of the color from the face of the map has leached through to the reverse side. This is an original antique map, not a reproduction or modern reprint, and it is fully guaranteed to be genuine.
