Published by Abraham Ortelius, 1570
This superior recreation of the historically important 16th century map by Abraham Ortelius, with superb full coloring, shows Europe with each country clearly delineated.
The original plate was engraved in 1570, and was used to produce all the maps of Europe published by Ortelius and his heirs until 1612. Consequently, this magnificent example is recognized as the first map of Europe to appear in an atlas.
