Angliae, Scotiae, et Hiberniae,
Sive Britannicar Insularum Descriptio.[British Isles]
A beautiful map of the British Isles, north to the right. The map is based on Mercator’s earlier map of the British Isles of 1564. Title in strapwork cartouche at top right, text in Latin, in its own cartouche at lower right, scale and royal arms; ships at sea. It is difficult to put an exact date on the map because of the complex publishing history of Ortelius’ atlas. Published in the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum.
