Theatrum Orbis Terrarum

With the support of the Friends at KB in 2013 helped acquire a beautiful atlas: a copy of the Dutch edition of the “Theatrum Orbis Terrarum” (Theater of the World) of Abraham Ortelius (1527-1598), published in Antwerp in 1571. The Latin edition of this work was published a year earlier in the same city and is considered the first modern atlas. Until 1612, 41 editions of this work have been published in several languages.

The website is in Dutch, but the atlas images are fantastic.
