Attractive map of Switzerland with two decorative cartouches. Latin text on verso. The map plates for Mercator's Atlas were bought in 1604 by Jodocus Hondius who, with his sons, Jodocus II and Henricus, published enlarged editions which dominated the map market for the following twenty to thirty years.
Lovely original coloring, good impression and wide original margins. Scattered marginal foxing.
