About this Item: Anversa, 1583. Mappa tratta 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. Map published taken from 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. Koeman 331:12; Phillips 387 Dimensioni 110 80mm. Seller Inventory # S33923

About this Item: Amsterdam, 1688. coppia di incisioni in un foglio, raffiguranti la carta dell’arcipelago e la pianta di La Valletta. Le due carte, solitamente si trovano nel Naukeurige beschryving der Eilanden, in de Archipel der Middelantische Zee, del Dapper. La peculiarità di questo esemplare è quella di essere anticamente unite, probabilmenete o in origine o da un antico propietario. Incisioni in rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Rare. Dimensioni 365x565. Magnificent bird's-eye plan of the harbor and city of Valletta seen from the northwest. Beautifully engraved with a unique pictorial title cartouche, ships, a coat of arms and a decorative key locating 46 sites within the city. Uncoloured; fine dark impression, short section of guard missing and this has caused a slight thinning of paper on verso, otherwise superb condition. A finely engraved plan of the island, with highly decorative figured cartouche and various sailing vessels in the sea area. From the German translation of the works of Montanus. These maps are usually included in Dapper’s Naukeurige beschryving der Eilanden, in de Archipel der Middelantische Zee and their peculiar characteristic is that they were joined together in the past. Copper engraving, in excellent condition. Rare. Dimensioni 365 565mm. Seller Inventory # GR3692
