Antique map titled 'Daniae Regni Typus' and 'Oldenburg Comit'. A nice example of Ortelius maps of Denmark and Oldenburg, which first appeared in the 1584 edition of his Theatrum Orbis Terrarum. The first map shows Denmark, based primarily on the work of Cornelis Anthoniszoon, who is credited in the cartouche at top right. The map is filled with place names but with limited watershed and topographical information. The seas are fully engraved in stipple. The right-hand map depicts the a portion of Lower Saxony based on the work of Laurens Michaelis, whose imprint appears at bottom right. The map is centered on Oldenburg with excellent detail of the extensive network of rivers. Embellishments include several sea monsters and sailing ships.

Condition: Good. General age-related toning. Minor wear and soiling. Latin text on verso. Please study image carefully.

Date: c.1598
