Dramatic map of ancient Thrace based on Ortelius' map of southeast Europe, derived from Gastaldi's 1560 map and information from numerous ancient sources. A portion of the Black Sea, the Sea of Marmara and Thrakikon Pelagos are shown. Three decorative, strapwork cartouches adorn the map. Engraved by Petrus Kaerius.
A nice impression on a sheet with faint toning on the centerfold. Generous original margins have some damp stain, not affecting the map. Centerfold separation at top margin repaired on verso with archival tape.
