              Est: $5,000 - $10,000

              This historic folio map is from Abraham Ortelius's Theatrum Orbis Terrarum. The work was published in Antwerp in 1574. The engraved map features Latin text to verso. The maps have been described as "the most outstanding engravings depicting the wide-spread interest in classical geography in the 16th century." (Van der Krogt) The beautiful maps feature Renaissance-style cartouches and decorative work including vessels, sea and myhtological monsters, birds, medallions, et al. Noted art historian, James A. Welu, comments on "their richness of ornamentation, [they are] a combination of science and art that has rarely been surpassed in the history of mapmaking... Ortelius's Theatrum is known for its numerous decorative cartouches, which undoubtedly added to the atlas's long popularity." (Art and Cartography, pp. 145-146) Theatrum Orbis Terrarum is widely recognized as the first modern atlas which shaped the future of cartography throughout the 17th century. It utilized text and maps to fully explore the known world. "The publication of this atlas [Theatrum, 1570] marked an epoch in the history of cartography. It was the first uniformly sized, systematic collection of maps of the countries of the world based only on contemporary knowledge and in that sense may be called the first modern atlas." (Tooley) Frans Hogenberg also worked on the publication of this atlas. Abraham Ortelius (1527-1598) was one of the most influential cartographers of the 16th century. He was born in Antwerp, Belgium but traveled throughout Europe where he eventually met Mercator. Ortelius became one of the most important cartographers in history. His largest accomplishment was certainly his atlas entitled Theatrum Orbis Terrarum. He was also appointed Royal Cartographer to King Philip II of Spain.

              Abraham Ortelius, Presbiteri Johannis, Sive, Abissinorum Imperii Descriptio. Antwerp: 1609-1612. Incisione in rame in coloritura. mm 374x440. Foglio: mm 470x570. Mappa dell'immaginario regno di Giovanni Presbitero in Abissinia, dall'edizione latina del 1609 del Theatrum Orbis Terrarum. Nella carta sono raffigurate numerose città lungo il corso del Nilo e dei suoi affluenti, oltre a due grandi laghi, Zaire e Zaflan, approssimativamente equivalenti alle posizioni degli attuali laghi Vittoria e Tanganica, al di sopra le cosiddette Montagne della luna. Sono presenti anche le regioni e i regni vicini di Persia, della penisola arabica, dell'Egitto, della Nubia e del Benin, così le città de La Mecca, Medina, Gerusalemme, Il Cairo, Alessandria e Tripoli, con i loro nomi. La mappa è riccamente decorata, con coppie di elefanti in Nubia e nel Congo occidentale, una nave da guerra a vela, probabilmente un sambuco arabo, al largo della costa dell'Africa occidentale, una coppia di mostri marini a est dell'Abissinia e dell'Arabia. Sono presenti due cartigli uno con il titolo in latino, il secondo, contenente un lungo elenco di titoli onorifici riferiti a Giovanni, il cui stemma con un leone che regge un crocifisso è posto immediatamente al di sopra. Giovanni il Presbitero fu un mitico re cristiano popolare nelle cronache e nelle tradizioni europee dal XII al XVII secolo. Si suppone che Giovanni discendesse da Davide, o in alcune tradizioni, dai Tre Magi. Si credeva regnasse su una nazione cristiana nestoriana persa tra musulmani e pagani d'Oriente. Sebbene la mappa di Waldseemüller del 1507 lo collochi in India, Fries lo trasferì in Africa nel 1522. Infine gli esploratori portoghesi si convinsero di averlo trovato in Etiopia, come riportato in questa mappa. (1)
