Two maps on one folio sheet. Caletensium covers the coastline between Calais and Estaples in very good detail, based in part on a four-sheet map by Nicolas de Nicolay. Veromanduorum covers a small region surrounding Saint-Quentin in northern France. The cartographic source of the map was Jean de Surhon who received royal privilege to make a map of the region in 1557. Both sources are noted in the cartouches. Superb original color. Ref: van den Broecke #45. Minor soil in margins, still fine.
