Description

Striking old color example of De Jode's map of the region bounded by Constantinople, Macedonia and Serbia in the south, the Black Sea in the East and Transylvania in the Northwest, centered on the Course of the Danube River, from just west of Belgrad to its terminus in the Black Sea.

De Jode's was a contemporary of Ortelius. His Speculum Orbis did not enjoy the same commercial success as Ortelius, making his maps very scarce and highly desireable. This map was engraved by the van Deutecum brothers and is based upon an earlier map by Gastaldi.
