Antiques, Fine Art & Collectibles. Original Antique 16th C Map Of France Abraham Ortelius Atlas 1573 Galliae Regni. DESCRIPTION Antique original 16th C map of France from the book Theatrum Orbis Terrarum. Printed by Francis Hogenberg in 1573 at Antwerp the maps are tipped onto stubs at the centerfold. This map is of Galliae at that time with France being only a small part of the modern day France. The legend of this map names the author whose map Ortelius adapted, in this case Ioanne Ioliveto (Jean Jolivet). This richly engraved map is filled with topographical features and numerous cities. The large strapwork cartouche contains text, and a coat of arms is displayed in the stipple engraved sea. Dutch text on verso. Part of a larger atlas book which was disbound and incomplete when found. This version contained 70 individual maps with 102 contributing cartographers to its catalogue auctorum. In the preface Ortelius credits Franciscus Hogenberg with engraving nearly all the maps. The 1573 Additamentum to the atlas is notable for containing Humphrey Llwyd’s Cambriae Typus, the first map to show Wales on its own. A great addition to your rare antique map collection.
