Africae Propriae Tabula In qua, Punica regna uides; Tyrios, et Agenoris urbem

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).

Ruscelli’s Atlas is an expanded edition of Gastaldi’s Atlas of 1548, which has been called the
