OML Barcode 7348
Title: THEATRUM ORBIS TERRARUM
Description: A 1595 edition of what is widely considered the first modern atlas. The Latin title translates to "Theater of the World" - an apt description for such a beautiful and historic book. For comparison our Rare Book Library also contains the first edition of this atlas published in 1570.
