Book Description Anversa, 1583. Rara carta dell'Europa disegnata e incisa da Philippe Galle per la prima edizione del suo Spieghel der Werelt, tascabile, il primo atlante tascabile, edito nel 1577 in lingua olandese. La mappa, sostanzialmente basata su quella grande edita nel Theatrum Orbis Terrarum di Ortelius, rispetto alla quale è più aggiornata e ricca nella toponomastica, presenta numerosi elementi decorativi, quali navi e mostri marini. A differenza delle altre carte dell'Epitome, questas mappa ha un formato più largo. La lastra fu utilizzata solo per poche edizioni dell'opera, di qui la sua rarità. Esemplare tratto dalla seconda edizione in lingua francese de Le Miroir du Monde. Le Miroir du Monde è l edizione in lingua francese in prosa dello Spieghel der Werelt, il primo atlante tascabile pubblicato nel 1577, in lingua olandese, da Philip Galle, con testo in rima curato da Peeter Heyns, e stampato dalla tipografia Plantin. Lo Spieghel der Werelt era una versione ridotta del Theatrum Orbis Terrarum di Ortelius. Le lastre, quasi tutte derivate dal Theatrum, furono disegnate e incise da Philip Galle. Due anni dopo, nel 1579, fu data alle stampe l edizione in lingua francese in prosa, perché Heyns non aveva avuto il tempo necessario per la resa in versi, col titolo Le Miroir du Monde. Il successo di questa edizione francese, è provato proprio dalla seconda edizione pubblicata a soli 4 anni di distanza, nel 1583. Complessivamente Galle pubblicò 5 edizioni in lingua francese, di cui solo le prime due con il titolo Le Miroir du Monde; a partire dal 1588, e così per le edizioni del 1590 e del 1598, il titolo dell opera fu modificato in Epitome du thétre du Monde d Abraham Ortelius, e il nome di Peeter Heyns non figurò più sul frontespizio. Rispetto alla prima edizione del 1579, che conteneva 72 mappe, la seconda edizione fu aumentata di 11 nuove mappe, per un totale di 83 tavole. Dal 1577 al 1598, Galle & Heyns pubblicarono ben 11 edizione, di cui l ultima edita nell anno della morte di Ortelius conteneva ben 123 mappe. A fine example of that uncommon map of all Europe, designed and engraved by Philippe Galle for the first edition of Spieghel der Werelt, the first modern pocket-atlas, based on Abraham Ortelius' Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, published in 1577. This map appeared in only a handful of editions of the miniature atlas, consequently is quite rare. Europe map published by Galle is larger that the other maps in the atlas. Numerous decorative features including ships, sea-monsters and so on can be seen in elaborate design. This example was published in the second French edition of Le Miroir du Monde , published by Galle & Heyns in 1583, printed by Plantin. Le Miror du Monde is the French transaltion of the Duch poems Spieghel der Werelt, the first modern pocket-atlas, published by Philip Galle with text by Peeter Heyns in 1577, based on Abraham Ortelius Theatrum Orbis Terrarum. The maps were drawn and engraved by Galle. Two years later, in 1579, Galle & Heyns published the first French edition: Heyns translated the Dutch poems into French prose because he did not find time to put them into rhyme. This French edition became very popular and in 1583 an amplified reprint appeared. Galle & Heyns published 5 French edition, two with the title Miroir, and three (1588, 1590, 1598) with the title Epitome du thétre du Monde d Abraham Ortelius, that appeared from 1588 onwards (Peeter Heyns name no longer figures on the title pages of the Antwerp editions). Second French edition of this rare miniature atlas, "enlarged with eleven maps. six are double sized" (Koeman p. 275). Compared to the first edition of 1579, which contained 72 maps, the second edition was increased by 11 new maps, for a total of 83 plates. Between 1577 & 1598 Galle issued 11 editions, all printed by Christopher Plantin. 217 161mm. Seller Inventory # S339500

His early career is that of a businessman and most of his journeys before 1560 are for commercial purposes. In 1564 he completed a "mappemonde", eight-leaved map of the world, which afterwards appeared in reduced form in the Theatrum. The only extant copy of this great map is in the library of the University of Basle (cf. Bernoulli, Ein Karteninkunabelnband, Basle, 1905, p. 5). He also published a two-sheet map of Egypt in 1565, a plan of the Brittenburg castle on the coast of the Netherlands in 1568, an eight-sheet map of Asia in 1567, and a six-sheet map of Spain before the appearance of his atlas.

Book Description Antwerp, 1570. No Binding. Condition: Very Good. Europae Abraham Ortelius Antwerp: c.1570 Hand-colored copperplate engraving, beautiful original color Sheet size: 16 1/2" 21" Accompanying Latin text on verso Abraham Ortel, or Ortelius (1527-1598), was born in Antwerp in 1527 and was educated in Greek, Latin and mathematics. Ortelius began his career in cartography as a map colorist, and worked as a map and book dealer. Ortelius evolved into a keen and discerning expert on contemporary geographical knowledge and its expression in cartography, even traveling through Italy and France with Gerard Mercator (1512-1594), his friend and rival. In the 1560 s Ortelius conceived of the project that would win him international acclaim, the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, widely considered the first modern atlas. Ortelius collected the best contemporary maps available, and had each re-engraved by the talented Flemish artist Frans Hogenberg (1535-90) into a standard format and graphic style, appended scholarly text to their versos, and published them as a uniform edition. He maintained the highest quality of paper, engraving and coloring, resulting in some of the most beautiful maps ever produced. The Theatrum proved to be a landmarkadvancement over previous collections of maps. Suddenly, curious Europeans truly seemed to have the world at their fingertips. From the time of its first printing until well after Ortelius death, international demand for the Theatrum continued unabated. Between the first appearance of the Theatrum in 1570 and its final edition in 1612, it was printed in 31 editions and seven languages, a remarkable figure for the time. Seller Inventory # dJ0701c
