Maps, Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Rhine, Frankfurt Main, Ortelius
"Belgii Veteris Typus ex Conatibus Geographicis Abrahami Ortelii"
Copper etching by Peter Kaerius. Hand-colored.
The title might suggest that this map was part of "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum" by Abraham Ortelius. But this is not the case. This map was produced for Ortelius but not used in his atlas.
Instead it was published by Johannes Jansson (1588-1664)
Pubiished in his "Accuratissima Orbis Antiqui Delineatio" (Atlas with historic maps)
Amsterdam, ca. 1660
Original antique print
Map shows the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg eastwards to the run of the Rhine river and south to Frankfurt on the Main during Roman occupation. Most place names and rivers are in Latin. An interesting flash-back into history! Two hand-colored cartouches: Title and Distances.

Normal signs of age and use.
38,5 x 48 cm ( ca. 15.2 x 18.9")
