        PLANCIUS, PETRUS. Orbis Terrarum Typus de Integro Multis in Locis Emendatus. Engraved double-hemispheric world map engraved by Baptista Doetecomus. 15x20 1/4 inches sheet size, upper and lower margins wide, left and right narrow, Dutch text on verso; light edge soiling, few small marginal losses, a crisp impression. Amsterdam, 1590

        Estimate $2,000 - 3,000

        Fine engraved map from an early Dutch Bible. "Most of the maps prepared by Plancius are uncommon, if not rare, as they were not reprinted in standard atlas form. One of his earliest productions is this world map in double hemispherical form after Rumold Mercator's world map of 1587" - Shirley 177, second state with Magallanica but without changes to Plancius's name in the title banner and no text below the map.
