Description :This is the oldest printed map of the Netherlands as a whole. Published in 'La Geografia', Venice, 1548. With a pictoresque view of cities and of woods. Part of England is also visible,

Until recently, it was believed that this was the first map of the Low Countries in their entirety. This map provides a fairly
complete view of the territory of the Low Countries, although various place-names were misspelled and the external shape, specifically of the Zuiderzee and Friesland, left something to be desired.
Recently, however, Meurer found an older manuscript map of the Low Countries, which he cautiously attributes to the London printer and publisher Reyner Wolfe. This map, from about 1539, is based on a map from the 1520s —which has not survived—by Jan van Hoirne (also known as Jan de Beeldsnijder) of Antwerp.
Beginning in 1570, Abraham Ortelius included mention of this map in the “Catalogus Auctorum” in his Theatrum under the title “Ioannes à Horn, Germaniæ Inferioris Tabulam: Antverpiæ.” Although Ortelius did not supply a date, the English “copy” of Van Hoirne’s map leaves no doubt that it is the oldest map of the Low Countries.

Condition : Paper thinning and splits along the center fold. Centerfold repair and added binders slip. With the usual plate-cracks in upper right corner, among some marginal ink smudge.
