A lovely replica of a 1570 map - originally hand drawn of France and neighbouring countries.
From the Historical World Atlas.
This atlas - the 'Theatrum Orbis Terrarum', created by the famous cartographer Abraham Ortelius and published in Antwerp in 1570, combined the knowledge of cartography and history up to that point. It is a collection of existing and new maps in book format with explanations and references to each map and map-makers that were uses as sources for his work. He was influenced, and advised by his contemporary, Gerhard Mercator, and thus Ortelius had created the first Atlas in the modern fashion.
Glass with a wooden frame.
Measurements are: 58 cm x 52 cm.
