About

ABRAHAM ORTELIUS (1527 - 1598) AMERICAE SIVE NOVI ORBIS, NOVA DESCRIPTIO, 1587 (1603) (Van Den Broecke 11, Burden 64; Schwartz & Ehrenberg 69) Engraving. A very good, well printed example with beautiful plate tone from the 3rd plate of 1587. With Latin text and "Promittis et Postell" at the 13th line from bottom being the edition of 1603 per Van den Broecke and Burden. Plate c. 14 1/4 x 19 1/4 inches, sheet 18 1/4 x 22 inches. A very important and early map of the Western Hemisphere. Uncolored, in good condition with good size margin. Uncolored maps reveal the beauty of engraving that is often obscured by the coloring. The coloring is frequently done many years or centuries after the printing of the map. Just acquired. Photos with uneven lighting. Need to be re-shot.
