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.

Gallia Vetus ORTELIUS original map of Ancient FRANCE De Bello Gallico Cesar

Gallia Vetus, Ad Iulij Caesaris commentaria. Fine and early historical. Nice Ortelius’ map of Ancient France based on Caesar’s De Bello Gallico. It is engraved to show the mountains, rivers and forests with only a few ancient place names. The names of famous people and tribes of Gallia, as described by Caesar, are listed at sides. Embellished map with tiny ships sailing in the seas and three strapwork cartouches containing the title, scale and dedication, all surrounded in an elaborately engraved border. From the rare 1624 edition of Ortelius’s Parergon in quo Veteris Geographiae aliquot tabulae… Nomenclator Ptolemaicus with the text by Balthasar Moretus. Orteliuss Parergon began as a companion to his Theatrum but eventually it became an independent work. In fact, this collection of maps of the ancient world was so significant that it became the model for all historical atlases published throughout the seventeenth century. The maps and plates in the Parergon have to be evaluated as the most outstanding engravings. Depicting the wide-spread interest in classical geography in the 16th century (Koeman). Unlike the Theatrum, which consisted of existing maps reengraved by Ortelius, the maps in the Parergon were drawn by Ortelius himself. As a scholar of antiquity, a dealer in antiques, and a visitor to ancient sites, he was well prepared to execute the maps and all the maps from the Parergon reflect his passion for the ancient world. From: Theatri Orbis Terrarum Parergon; Sive Veteris Geographiae Tabulae, Commentarijs Geographicis et Historicis illustratae… Size: Printed area measures 36 x 46 cm on sheet 46 x 56 cm.
