"Belgii Veteris Typus"
Published by Hondius, 1619
Engraved by Joducus Hondius in 1619, this map of ancient Belgium is an amalgamation of prior maps by Ortelius and De Keere. Well balanced and beautifully engraved, there are two cartouches and a substantial vignette portraying a man and a woman from ancient times.
This map is also embellished with a mile scale in German miles. It is interesting to note that the North Sea had five different names according to the ancients.
