First Issue of Vrient's Miniature World Map
First Issue of VrientJan Baptista Vrients.
[Globus Terrestris.]
Antwerp, Vrients, 1601. 90 x 125mm. Coloured. When Vrients published his first edition of Ortelius's Epitome he introduced this new double-hemisphere map, alongside the original oval map engraved by Galle. It is untitled, although there is 'Globus Terrestris' in letterpress above the map. Under the spheres is a rustic scene, with a church in the centre.
