Abraham Ortelius’ map of ancient Gaul in original hand color, published by Willem Janszoon Blaeu, Amsterdam, 1635. The map is titled Gallia Vetus, Ad iul Caesaris Commentaria, ex conatibus geographicis Abrah Ortelii. In a decorative cartouche. Ortelius’ depiction of ancient France is based on information from Caesar’s De Bello Gallico, which begins with the frequently quoted phrase “Gallia est omnis divisa in partes tres”, meaning “Gaul is a whole divided into three parts, ” inhabited by the Belgae, the Aquitani, and the Celts. This map labels Gaul’s three parts, as well as the Roman province on the north shore of the Mediterranean, and shows mountains, rivers and forests, with only a few ancient place names, including Parisi (Paris). The names of famous people and tribes of Gallia, as described by Caesar, are listed at the sides, and there’s a portrait of Caesar at the upper left. The image area measures 38.7 x 50 cm [15¼" x 19¾"] on a larger sheet, with vertical center fold, as issued. There is Latin text on the reverse side, with exetnsive commentary on the Druids. This map is in very good condition, with a tiny scratch in the cartouche and a thin spot in the upper margin, outside of the image area. Please see the scans, which include front and back views of the entire sheet, and feel free to ask any questions. This is an original , authentic antique map, not a reproduction or modern reprint, and it is fully guaranteed to be genuine. Powered by SixBit’s eCommerce Solution.

1603 Ortelius Map TOURAINE France Tours & Loire Environs Decorative & Detailed

Touraine – Turonensis Ducatus et Confinium Galliae Celticae Descriptio. 46.5 cm x 36.5 cm copperplate engraving, 55 cm x 44 cm sheet size, modern hand colour, Antwerp, Jan Baptist Vrients, engraved 1598, printed 1603. We are pleased to offer this scarce original map of the French province of Touraine. Only 300 imprints for this 1603 Latin edition are believed to have been issued, and the masterfully engraved map is deservedly one of the most sought-after of all the French regional maps of Ortelius. This well preserved example exhibits hand colour work of the very highest order and will make an outstanding presentation if matted and framed. Tours and environs – note tiny bridges and trees. Many of the ornate cartouches used by Ortelius’ engravers were taken from a series of ornament prints published in the 1560s by the brilliant architect, painter, designer and graphic artist Hans Vredeman de Vries. Map provides the latitude and longitude of the “Duchy” in an inset box. François is credited for the cartography in the Latin form of his name (Ysaaco Franco) in the supplemental cartouche. Legend lists islands in the Loire – note elegant calligraphy. To get a sense of map detail consider that the mileage scale seen below measures just 7 cm from 1 to 5 actual size. The Latin text on verso is a fascinating document in and of itself and we offer representative excerpts below derived from the 1606 English edition published in London. T he inhabitants of Tours are held to be one of the richest people in all France, both for the fruitfulness of their fields (which they deservedly call the King’s Garden) and also for their excellent manner of government and the industry of their citizens. Who are especially addicted to commerce and traffic, for which purpose their navigable river stands them in great stead… They have also attempted of late to make silk, and that of Italy affords no better quality… Outside the city of Montrichard there are underground houses, with gardens and vineyards above them.. Condition – Please note carefully: The map – more than four centuries old – is in overall very good condition as can be ascertained from photos, strong impression with distinct platemark on fine laid paper with watermark, image area essentially pristine. Remnants of an old binding strip are present on verso and its outline is visible on recto on both sides of and parallel to centrefold. Map exhibits creasing in this are all along centrefold in a band 2 cm wide as can be evaluated in photos. Map exhibits several areas of “as issued” excess ink from the original impression as can be evaluated in photos; presumably the plate was not wiped entirely clean prior to the imprint. While certainly somewhat pronounced, we do not consider this a significant issue at all, even a somewhat charming reminder that these intaglio maps are individual hand-made works of art. Trivial show-through of text on verso in margin only as is usual In all, a very fine example of a much sought-after map that will make an elegant presentation if matted and framed.
