Geldria. En tibi, amice lector, nobilis ille clarusq[ue] ducatus Geldriae, cum omnibus eius limitibus, multis navigeris fluminibus abunde insignis, agrorumq[ue] fertiliate dives, praesertim apud Batavos, quorum crebra fit mentio apud veteres, cum ob miram glebae ubertatem, tum ob gentis celebratissimam in armis dexteritatem, Iam recens ad exemplar eius descriptionis, quae pridem excusa est Roma per Mich. Tramesini castigatior.[Antwerp, Cornelis de Jode, 1593]. Double-page engraved map (plate size: 36.5 x 48 cm; paper size: 41 x 56 cm), with the title in a cartouche in the upper left, a note from the publisher at lower left, a scale at lower right (ca. 1:400,000) and letterpress text on the back. In a grey passe-partout (43.5 x 65 cm).
F. van Ortoy, L'oeuvre cartographique de Gérard et de Corneille d Jode, p. 117; Vredenburg-Alink, Kaarten van Gelderland 5. Second printing of an early engraved map of the Dutch province Gelderland (the fifth map in Vredenburg-Alink?s chronological list) by the Dutch engraver, cartographer and publisher Gerard de Jode (1509-1591). The map, orientated with west at the head, shows the area of 16th-century Gelderland and slightly beyond, from Utrecht in the west to Vreden in the east and from Kampen in the north to Roermond in the south. The map was first published in De Jode's Speculum Orbis Terrarum (1578), and printed unchanged in the 1593 Speculum Orbis Terrae: an enlarged edition of the earlier atlas, now published by De Jode's son, Cornelis (1568-1600). Gerard de Jode based his map on Tramesini's map, who based his in turn on that of the cartographer Jacob van Deventer (d. 1575). Margins slightly foxed and slightly discoloured along the fold, otherwise in very good condition.
