Map of the Middle East, taken from Theatrum Orbis Terrarum
From a collection of 53 maps complied by Abraham Ortelius (d. 1598). Originally published in Antwerp in 1570, this is considered to be the first true modern atlas. Ortelius was an engraver, illustrator and geographer, and one of the most notable representatives of the Netherlandish school of cartography at this time. The maps in the Theatrum were mostly reproductions of earlier works, which Ortelius happily acknowledged, and which were added to in five subsequent volumes. The Theatrum was translated into a number of languages, and ran to more than 25 editions during Ortelius’ lifetime.
