Rare 16th century folio-size map of Hainaut by Gerard de Jode.

Dimensions: 38.5 x 52.5 cm.

Condition: bad to mediocre condition. The map was thoroughly restored (multiple fixed worm holes and reinforced on the back of the corners), brown spots in the margins and pieces of the decorative edge were updated. Nevertheless, it is still a very decorative map, beautifully hand-coloured, clear watermark and adequate margins. Centre fold is as issued.

Despite the lesser condition, this is still a very decorative copy of a very rare map of Hainaut by Gerard de Jode, published in Antwerp. The map waas issued as a very limited edition from 1578 on and appeared in the ´Speculum Orbis Terrarum´ that was called the first modern atlas together with Ortelius’ ‘Theatrum Orbis Terrarum´.

The map shows part of Wallonia and the border region with France, and includes places like Tournai, Ath, Mons, Charleroi, Dinant, Douai, Valenciennes, Cambrai, etc.


Additional information about De Jode by Burden:

In 1578 Gerard de Jode published his Speculum Orbis Terrarum, an atlas aimed at competing with the Theatrum of Ortelius. However, the latter had first been issued in 1570 and had already built a commanding market presence, and so despite de Jode's longer standing reputation the atlas did not sell very well. Only a dozen or so examples have survived. Undeterred, he made plans for another expanded edition, and upon his death in 1591 it was taken on by his son Cornelis. The Speculum Orbis Terrae of 1593 likewise did not sell well and was never reissued. Although more examples than the first edition have survived, it too is very scarce. Many of de Jode's maps are judged to be superior to those of Ortelius, both in detail and style.
