Title : Pedemontanae Vicimorumque Regionum auctore Jacobo Castaldo descript..
Map maker : ORTELIUS, A..
Date : Antwerp, 1612.
Size : 16.3 x 22.0 inches. / 41.5 x 56.0 cm.
Colouring : Coloured.
Description :This map is one of the most accurate regional maps contained in the 'Theatrum' by Abraham Ortelius. It shows the region of north western Italy, with Genoa (right below), Milan (upper right corner), Turin (just left of the middle) all the way to Monaco (left lower corner) and the Alps (left).
This is a late version of the map that first appeared in 1570. As this is a rare edition without text on the reverse side (something that was done for editions in languages where no text was available), the age has to be estimated to probably between 1609 and 1612 (information by Van den Broecke):
Unintentional states are provided by a crack at the bottom of the plate, below the G of "LIGVS". The crack is first visible in the 1579L(A) edition. By 1584, it has widened and has been repaired with 6 bolts.
This cracking process continues and in 1612 there is a wide gap resulting in a very heavy ink line of about 3 mm wide extending vertically for 40 mm, ending above the "LIGVS" lettering.
Ort 128 (Koeman/Meurer: 34, Karrow: 1/45, vdKrogtAN: 7050:31).Giacomo Gastaldi, abt. 1500-1566 (Karrow 30/76, p. 216-249, Meurer p. 148-154).
Condition : In excellent condition. Some light toning, on thick, strong paper. Ample margins, clear print.
