First edition of Ortelius's major atlas of the World. "The first modern geographical atlas...The compilation of a general atlas containing maps of uniform size and bound up in a single volume was the result of a suggestion of a friend...Ortelius, who knew most of the map-makers and map-sellers both in Amsterdam and abroad, gathered together the best available maps of the various countries and had them re-engraved in uniform size" (The World Encompassed, 135).

His list of contributors, which included not only the authors of the original maps but other cartographers and geographers as well, has been of particular value for historians of cartography.

Folio (410 x 285 mm). Engraved allegorical title with epigramma on verso, 53 engraved double-page maps, most by Frans Hogenberg.
