Copperplate engraving, 368 x 498 mm. Latin text on the verso. A fine example. [Antwerp :]

The first printed map of Wales, drawn by the Welsh cartographer Humphrey Lhuyd, and published in Abraham Ortelius's Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, which is regarded as the first modern atlas of the world with maps prepared on a uniform format.

On the verso is a densely printed single-page description of Wales in Latin. The incorrect page number '10' has been crudely altered to '9' by the publisher.
