Title : GERMANIAE TYPUS / Deutschlanndt. . . MDLXXVI..
Map maker : VRIENTS, Johannes Baptist..
Date : Antwerp, 1608.
Size : 14.8 x 19.3 inches. / 37.7 x 49.0 cm.
Colouring : Original colours
Description :A striking and detailed map of the German Empire, including the Low Countries, Switzerland, Austria, and part of the Balkans, prepared by Johan Baptiste Vrients, for the very late editions of Ortelius' 'Theatrum Orbis Terrarum', the first modern atlas of the world.
The original plate, engraved in 1576 by F. Hogenberg, was acquired by Vrients, and with some small alternations, used for his editions of the 'Theatrum Orbis Terrarum' since 1603. This map is from the first Italian edition of the Ortelius atlas , printed in 1608, in 300 copies only.
This map was among the additions made by Vrients when he took over publication of the Theatrum after Ortelius' death. It was published in relatively few editions and is very uncommon.
The Vrients map's are prized for their beauty and stunning engraving work, having been added and updated in later editions of Ortelius atlas beginning in 1598 after Ortelius' death.
Van den Broeke #57. Meurer (Germania), 6.2.1.b.
Condition : In generally good condition, very light natural age toning of paper by age, a few spots of foxing in margins, 3 small restorations to the centrefold on the back of the map. In fine original with nice old colouring.
