Title: SALISBVRGENSIS | IVRISDICTIONIS,| "locorumq vicinorum vera descriptio | Auctore Marco Secznagel | Salisburgense". [A true depiction of the Salzburg area and surrounding places by Marcus Secznagel of Salzburg. (Upper left cartouche, 8 line poem:) "Qui patriæ adfert ingenio suæ | Illustre nomen, Laudibus excolens. | Dignus favore est, præmioque | Quem sequens veneretur ætas | Cum Marcus ergo fecerit hoc opus | Grato tuum, te queso, foue sinu | Salczburga ciuem, gestiensque | Posteritatis honore cinge". [Whoever with his talents contributes to the splendid name of his native country, providing excellence through glory, deserves admiration from the next generation. Because Marcus [Secznagel] has achieved this welcome contribution, I pray to you, Salzburg, to cherish him to your bosom, and load him with honours on behalf of posterity]. (From leading Ortelius scholar Marcel van den Broecke.)

    Abraham Ortelius (1527 - 1598) was a Flemish cartographer & geographer, celebrated as the creator of the first modern atlas, the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum (Theatre of the World). Ortelius' work, the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, was the first uniformly sized, systematic collection of maps; this work can therefore be called the first atlas (although the term was not used until 20 years later by Mercator).
