Gorgeous example of Ortelius' two sheet map of Egypt, extending from the Cataracts to the source of the Nile. This remarkable two sheet map first appeared in 1584 and was replaced by a single sheet map in the 1587 French edition. However, in 1592, the map was re-issued in an edition of only 525 copies. In this edition only, there is a text change on the map, where the word "tribu" is correctly spelled in the 5 line annotation below and slightly to the right of the inset map (line 5, word 3). The map is dedicated to the humanist and medical doctor Scipio Fabio from Bologna. One of the most decorative and dramatic of maps prepared by Ortelius himself., Map is dedicated to the Humanist and medical doctor Scipio Fabio from Bologna., Relief shown pictorially., Inset: Alexandri Nor.
