Charming miniature map covering the Ditmarschen region decorated with a strapwork title cartouche and a sailing ship. The map is oriented with north to the left. This map is from a pocket edition of Abraham Ortelius' Theatrum. The maps were copied from Phillip Galle's final edition of 1598 but were drawn and engraved by Ambrose and Ferdinand Arsenius with wide borders with latitude and longitude shown. Italian text on verso.
Faint damp stains in blank margins.
