Description

Fine example of Bertius' miniature map of Mexico .

Detailed and finely executed map of Mexico, from Bertius' Tabularum Geographicarum .... The title in Latin across the verso is erroneously stamped with the name Descriptio Hispaniolae. Such errors were not unusual with the letter press titles added to miniature atlases, such as those by Ortelius, Mercator, Hondius, Speed, Bertius, etc.
