Title : Angliae, scotiae, et Hiberniae, sive Britannicar : insularum descriptio..
Map maker : ORTELIUS, A..
Date : Antwerp, 1587.
Size : 13.5 x 19.5 inches. / 34.3 x 49.5 cm.
Colouring : Coloured.

Description :A classic, handsome and decorative map of ancient British Isles with north orientated to the east.
Based on Mercator's 1564 map of the British isles and improved by Saxton's 1579 map and the writings of the ancient classical writers. Embellishments include seven ships and three decorative strap work cartouches.
The seas are represented in Ortelius' swirling pattern.
Numerous place names are on the map - "Londen", "Dublyn", etc.
This was an influential map with a very wide circulation. Many of the names betray its ecclesiastical sources, being issued only about thirty years after the Dissolution of the Monasteries. The first occurrence of this map in the "Theatrum", was in 1570 and was replaced by a later map in 1606.
Condition : Wide margins. Some marginal spotting. Blank verso, scarce.
