= Charming and rare atlas, especially this printing. It is a reduced edition of Ortelius' Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, published for those who could not afford the expensive large atlases of the time. Van der Krogt/ Koeman IIIA, 332:13 (counting the view as map and thus w. 126 maps); Koeman III, Ort 58; Phillips 413. Van der Krogt IIIA, p.292: "A new series of pocket-size atlases was begun by Filips Galle in 1588. It seems that he was not satisfied with the quality of the maps in the Spieghel der Wereld. He had new maps engraved in a much better style, and gradually replaced the old maps with new ones. At the same time, he changed the title and added the name of Abraham Ortelius, giving it a prominent position on the title page." Four different printings of this 1601-edition are known (A-D in Van der Krogt), containing 10-23 of the old 'Spieghel' maps. Our copy is printing A, with 23 old maps (which may be cartographically less clear but which are certainly no less attractive) and 103 new ones (incl. the view). Contains i.a. a double-hemisphere celestial map, double-hemisphere worldmap, a worldmap in Mercator projection ("Typus Orbis Terrarum"), 4 maps of the continents, and a view of the Escurial.

The names of Van Jagen or Sepp are not mentioned on any of the maps in this copy, but the at least the general map of the Netherlands is, apart from the title, quite similar to the one by Van Jagen.
