A nice early detailed map of Germany from the end of the sixteenth century.
Dimensions; (copper engraving) map 12,5 x 17,2 cm - Sheet 16 x 22,3 cm.
Condition; very good, strong impression, Latin text on verso.
The map comes from a scarce pirate edition published by Petrus Keschedt in Cologne one year after the publication of Magini's original work. Ortelius informed Magini in November 1597 about this and the publication was stopped till 1608 when a new edition was issued by Keschedt. Although the map is based on Magini's 1596 Geographiae it is in fact a new plate. The Magini's 1596 edition of Geographiae was the first reduced size version of Mercator's atlas. This is the second.
Publisher: Petrus Keschedt, Cologne 1597
Note: from Giovanni Magini's 'Geographiae Universaetum Tum Veteris Tum Novae....'
