Danorum Marchiae Seu Cimbrici Regnum Continens Iutiae Ducatum ac Codamis Sinus Insulas Chrographica delineatio (and)  Chorographica Ducatum Holstiae Schleswicae et Stormariae delineatio  (Norway & Denmark)

Rare pair of maps showing Norway and Denmark in one sheet and Denmark and Schleswig-Holstein in the second, from the second edition of De Jode's rare Speculum Orbis Terrae.

While at first glance, the map appears somewhat similar to Ortelius's map of Denmark, the maps are very different. Most notably, De Jode's map shows a much larger portion of Norway.

The present example is fine uncolored wide-margin copy, which has been rubricated on the front and back.

Gerard De Jode (1509-1591) was a pre-eminent mapmaker in the late seventeenth century, a time when the Dutch dominated the map trade. He was known for his many maps, some of which featured in Speculum Orbis Terrae (first edition Antwerp: 1578). Although never as successful as Ortelius’ Theatrum, the Speculum did get republished in a second edition in 1593, two years after De Jode’s death, by Arnold Coninx, and included this map. After his death, Gerard’s son, Cornelis (1568-1600), and his wife, Paschina, ran the shop. Unfortunately, Cornelis died young in 1600, aged only 32, and the stock and plates were sold to the publisher Joan Baptista Vrients.
