Nr. 804: Hungaria - Ungarn

Rare Hogenberg workshop map

“Hungaria Ungarn”. Depiction of Hungary with bordering regions, North at the top. Engraved map after Conrad Loew by the Hogenberg workshop, published by Lambert Andreas, Cologne 1597. 19,7 x 25 cm.

Szántai, Loew 1a. First state. From the first edition of the rare compendium of European road-maps “Kronn und Aussbundt aller Wegweiser”, published by L. Andreas, Cologne 1597 (cf. Meurer, Atlantes Colonienses, p. 140-46). The plate was used in this (first) edition of 1597 for the first time. The typographical German text on the back of the map contains descriptions of Bratislava and Ofen-Pest and indicates the distances between Bratislava and all major surrounding towns as well as between Ofen-Pest and major places in the directions of Bratislawa and Belgrade. – Fine early impression with full plate tone. At sides good original margins, at top and at bottom cut close, partly to the inner borderline. Not­withstanding the few imperfections a very good copy of a map of great rarity!
