ORTELIUS, Abraham.
Typvs Orbis Terrarvm.
Antwerp, 1595, Latin text edition. 360 x 495.
Finely coloured; four very small worm holes, only visible when held up to the light, minor repair to lower centrefold, just into plate mark, other very minor spotting on the margins, otherwise a fine example.
The classic oval shaped map of the World, with a large land-mass to the bottom of the map. This map supersedes the first two plates of the same title replacing the clouds with strap-work. Medallions occupy the four corners and the South American coastline has been corrected.
