ORTELIUS, Abraham.
Europea.
Antwerp, 1588, Spanish text edition. 350 x 465.
Superb original colour; expert restoration to bottom corners, minor re-instatement of printed loss with manuscript, this was due to paper softening, everything is now stable and it would be hidden with mounting, minor defects on printed surface, otherwise a very good example.
The second plate of Europe, with the Roman text nameing 'AFRICAE PARS' replaced by a curved style. After the Mercator map of 1554
Van den BROECKE:
5.
