  • Title/Content of Map: 1592 Ortelius Map of Britain and Ireland -- Angliae, Scotiae, et Hiberniae, sive Britannicar Insularum Descriptio
  • Date: 1592 c., Antwerp
  • Cartographer: A Ortelius
  • Size: 13.5 x 19.6 in.

    This is a large, highly attractive and very interesting map, orienting the British Islands East to West ('sideways' vs. today's conventions) and is Ortelius' earliest map of this region. Great deal of detail as to towns and topography is offered. Some of the place names appear to have Flemish/German influence, e.g. Ormyskyrk for Ormskirk, Dantre for Daventry. Outstanding engraving and the two ornate strapwork cartouches, a royal coat of arms, a compass and scale and five sailing ships, make this a rather unique map.
