Detailed topographical map of Berlin published in 1962, very shortly after the construction of the Berlin wall which isolated the west part from the east until 1989, by the Presse- und Informationsamt des Landes.
The powerful map is interesting also because it is before the construction of the second wall beginning in June 1963, which established the so-called death strip.
At top large title and the the coat of arms of Berlin west (a black bear on a white shield) introduced in 1954.

Fine and early historical map of Northern Africa, from Tunisia to Lybia with inset Carthage. Showing also Malta e part of Sicily. The map is ornated with a decorative cartouche and a panel of descriptive text on the Carthaginian Wars with Rome. From the 1624 final edition by Balthasar Moretus of the first historical atlas ever published. Ortelius?s Parergon began as a companion to his Theatrum but eventually it became an independent work. In fact, this collection of maps of the ancient world was so significant that it became the model for all historical atlases published throughout the seventeenth century. The maps and plates in the Parergon have to be evaluated as the most outstanding engravings depicting the wide-spread interest in classical geography in the 16th century (Koeman).
