Theatri Orbis Terrarum Enchiridion

Peacay’s got a nice post up on BibliOdyssey about the 1585 Theatri Orbis Terrarum Enchiridion by Favolius and Galle — not to be confused with the atlas with a similar name by Ortelius, a contemporary of theirs. “This atlas was produced during a highly active period in terms of cartographic printing, particularly in Antwerp,” peacay writes. “Mercator’s world map came out in 1569. The first atlas from Ortelius came out in 1570. Braun’s Civitates Orbis Terrarum […] was published in 1572. They were all influential, very popular and had many editions.” A digital edition of the complete atlas is available online (viewer plugin required).
