Title : Angliae, Scotiae et Hibernie Nova Descriptio..
Map maker : DE JODE, G..
Date : Antwerp, 1593.
Size : 13.7 x 19.4 inches. / 34.8 x 49.3 cm.
Colouring : In attractive strong original colours.

Description :Rare map of the British Isles in original colour from De Jode's Speculum orbis terrae. Oriented with West at the top. The map was based on Mercator's wall map from 1554. Gerard De Jode was the great rival of Ortelius, both made a living out of selling maps, and it seems not always on good terms. It is probable that Ortelius was responsible for a delay in the publication of Gerard de Jode's Speculum. Gerard De Jode, 18 years older than Ortelius, owned many more copper-plates for maps than Ortelius had. Ortelius did not employ highly paid engravers as De Jode had done.
De Jode received the ecclesiastical imprimatur in 1573, but it was not until 1579 that the first copies of the Speculum were sold at Plantin's shop, and only very few copies were sold. Now-a-days his atlases are rare. Also single leaves are an utmost rarity.
After the death of Gerard in 1591, the business was carried on by his widow and his son Cornelis, who re-issued the Speculum in 1593, most plates were newly engraved, and therefore making those of the first edition extremely rare.

The map is in a strictly contemporary colouring and of the highest level. More about "colouring of antique maps [+]
