Your feedback would be appreciated when you receive the item. Thank you for your interest in my auctions. These maps of France are from the first modern atlas, Abraham Ortelius. Or Theater of the World. The publication of this atlas marked an epoch in the history of cartography, for it is the first uniform and systematic collection of maps of the whole world based only on contemporary knowledge since the days of Ptolemy. In the sixteenth century there was a great increase in interest in maps and charts, and Ortelius, as a businessman with a passion for history and cartography, was at the forefront in meeting this demand. Through his collecting and his antiques business, Ortelius was able to research contemporary maps, becoming the greatest expert of his day in the bibliography of maps. Ortelius based his work on the best maps available, drawing all the maps himself with the celebrated Frans Hogenberg cutting most of the plates. Unlike other atlas-makers, Ortelius cited the authors of the original maps from which he compiled his work. Thus it is not only for his unprecedented achievement in issuing the first modern atlas, but also for his thoughtful and rigorous methodology, that Ortelius belongs amongst the first rank of cartographers. He is very aptly called the father of modern cartography. Abraham Ortelius (1527 – 1598) was a Flemish cartographer and geographer whom is celebrated as the creator of the first modern atlas, the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum (Theatre of the World). After studying Greek, Latin, and mathematics, Ortelius went into business with his sister as a book dealer and printer of maps. Ortelius’ work, the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, was the first uniformly sized, systematic collection of maps; this work can therefore be called the first atlas (although the term was not used until 20 years later by Mercator). Elegantly engraved by Frans Hogenberg, the work contained 70 maps on 53 leaves. In the following years, five supplements were added. Originally issued in 1570, four editions of the Theatrum were published the first year; it was to be reissued in 42 editions overall, until 1612, with 5 supplements and text in Latin, Dutch, German, French, Spanish, Italian and English.

Parade Antiques and Collectables. C1590 Julius Caesar Gallia Vetus Map of Gaul by Ortelius. A beautiful antique c1590 map of ancient Gaul (France)’GALLIA VETUS Ad July Caesaris commentaria’, following the description provided in Julius Caesar’s’Commentaries of his Gallic Wars’ (De Bello Gallico), from the 1593 supplement of Abraham Ortelius’ famous Theatrum Orbis Terrarum. His close familiarity with the text is immediately apparent in this scholarly, but also highly decorative map. Gaul, as per Caesar’s description, is divided into three parts, following the tribal divisions of the Belgae, Celtae, and Aquitani. Parts of the neighbouring provinces of Hispania, Provincia Romanorum, Cisalpine Gaul, Germania, and Britannia are also depicted. The map is ornamented in beautiful hand colour, and notable geographic features are shown. Principal cities and towns are picked out in red, including’Londinum’ in Britannia. The lands of each Celtic tribe are labelled, and extensive boxed lists on the right and left margins record every tribe, chieftain, and notable individual mentioned in Caesar’s text. The map is further embellished with a wide decorative border, and three strap-work cartouches, enclosing the title, inscription, and a dedication to the Archbishop of Antwerp and Renaissance humanist, Laevinus Torrentius. There is, on the reverse which is not visible because the map is framed, the latin text confirming the painstaking accuracy of Ortelius’ map, stating that no person, place, or region mentioned by Caesar is absent. Abraham Ortelius (1527 -1598) was a Flemish cartographer, cosmographer, geographer and publisher and a contemporary of Gerard Mercator, with whom he travelled through Italy and France. Although it is Mercator who first used the word “Atlas” as a name for a collection of maps, it is Ortelius who is remembered as the creator of the first modern atlas. Theatrum Orbis Terrarum’ was the first systematically collated set of maps by different map makers in a uniform format. The map is in very nice condition, with a slightly faded palette of colours and a bit of bruising and small crack to the lower paper where it folded. The picture is mounted, glazed and framed in gilt wood. Size of Print: 47.5 x 36.5 cm (18 ¾ x 14 3/8 inches) Size of Frame: 67.5 x 57 x 1.5 cm (26 ½ x 22 ½ x 5/8 inches) Weight: 3620 g.
