Polonia.
£200.00
Antwerp: J.B. Vrients, Latin text edition. 80 x 110mm. Coloured. Miniature map of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, stretching from the Baltic to the Black Sea.
This example comes from the first edition of the 'Epitome' published by Vrients.
The 'Epitome Theatri Orteliani' was a pocket-sized edition of Ortelius's folio atlas, the 'Theatrum Orbis Terarum'. Marketed for travellers and students, the smaller format was very popular, and was translated into six European languages. There were also a number of pirate editions printed in Italy, the last published in 1724, nearly 150 years after the first edition.
