About This Map
Considered to be the first atlas ever printed, Abraham Ortelius' Theatrum Orbis Terrarum (Theater of the World) was first published in 1570, and ultimately went through more than 30 editions in 7 languages over the next 40 years. This was the first time a group of maps were published together in uniform style and size. In addition, Ortelius acknowledged his contemporaries, listing the source materials and cartographers he used as the basis for the work.
This map of the world comes from the 1570 Latin edition.
Title: Typus Orbis Terrarum (Map of the World)
