I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. 1652 1ed Theatrum Europaeum Geography ATLAS Maps City Views Illustrated Merian HUGE & EXTREMELY RARE FOLIO w/185 Copper Engravings!

This edition was intended to the sixth and final edition, but because of popular demand, another volume was written 11 years later, again by Schleder.
