DESCRIPTIO ARCIS BRITANNICAE

by  Petrus Bertius


Engraved by Pieter Van Den Keere and published Amsterdam 1606 by Cornelium Nicolai, in;

 "Tabularum Geographicarum Contractarum Libri Quinque"

An original early 17th century copper engraved miniature antique map of the Roman fort and town of Lugdunum Batavorum in present day Katwijk on the North Sea coast of The Netherlands by Petrus Bertius. In Roman times Lugdunum Batavorum, also known as the Brittenburg was an important settlement on the border of the Roman Empire. Records show that at the time of engraving, the fort was visible on the shoreline at low spring tides and the layout is depicted here together with various Roman artefacts recovered from the ruins. The map is orientated with north downwards. 
A fine and interesting map enhanced with attractive later hand colouring.
A crisp dark impression on robust hand laid paper with related Latin text to verso. 

Fine condition, free of repairs or restoration.

Approx. 5" x 3.5" (120mm x 85mm) map area only, with full margins beyond.
