Hand-coloured engraved map. 340 x 490mm (13½ x 19¼"). Split in upper centre fold.
A map of Portugal, engraved by Baptista van Doetecum in 1600 after Fernando Alvares Secco's map of 1561, here published in a German editon of the Mercator-Hondius atlas. It is one of the most striking of 17th century maps of Portugal, and one of the few in the atlas to be printed from a purchased plate rather than engraved in-house.
