This is an attractive miniature version of Ortelius' important map of the Iberian peninsula. Pietro Maria Marchetti produced the second pocket atlas based on Abraham Ortelius' folio Theatrum. It is often referred to as the plagiarized version of the Epitome. The copper plates are closely copied from those of Philip Galle's 1593 Italian edition. On a full sheet (5.5 x 7.5") of Italian text.
