Rare 16th Century map of Russia and Ukraine, published by Zacharias Heyns in his rare Le Miroir du Monde, ou, Epitome du Theatre d'Abraham Ortelius, published in Amsterdam in 1598.

Zacharias Heyns was the son of Peter Heyns, who wrote the rhyming text for Ortelius' Spieghel Der Werelt, first published in 1577. Zacharias Heyns Le Miroir du Monde . . . was likely an attempt to continue the success of his father, although the maps bear no connection to Ortelius' work.

As noted by Burden, all of the maps for this work are woodcuts, making it one of the last atlases to employ this means of printing. The atlas is highly sought after among collectors, prized for its rarity and the unique appearance of its maps. The second edition of 1615 is virtually unknown, with Koeman locating only 1 example at the Bibliotheque Nationale.

Zacharias Heyns as a map maker in Amsterdam.  His works are rare.  His most notably work was his edition of Ortelius' miniature atlas, Le Miroir du Monde, ou, Epitome du Theatre d'Abraham Ortelius,  which included 80 maps and was published in Amsterdam.
