Gorgeous and rare 1609 Ortelius map of France.
Map of France adorned with four compass roses and an elaborate cartouche with coat-of-arms. One of the most decorative and rare maps of Vrients contained in the posthumous editions of Ortelius’s Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, widely considered the first modern atlas ever published.
Centerfold slightly separating at bottom; no damage. Scattered foxing throughout. Image quality is superb.
