Silesia by Ortelius

"Silesiae Typus". Copper etching by Martin Heilwig in recent coloring. Dedicated to Nicolaus Rhedinger.

Heilwig (Neisse 1516 - 1574 Breslau) was a student of Luther and Melanchthon. He etched and published this map in 1561 in Neisse as a single sheet map. The cartouche is bearing this date, although the map at hand was published by Abraham Ortelius in the first edition of his "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum" only in 1570 and 1571. In later editions this map was replaced by a slightly modified map by the same author (posthumously). An ornate border was added and some of the geographical and spelling mistakes eliminated. Since this map was published only in the two first editions it is very rare.

The actual map size is comparatively small on the entire page size. This makes for extremely wide margins all around. This map has some faults which need mentioning: Left and right corner in the wide margin have been (well) replaced. Four holes alongside centerfold within image and two in lower margin have been equally well repaired. The repairs in the image have been very professionally executed and are visible only when the map is held up against a light. Some fraying and two small missing paper pieces in margin as well as a general patina conclude the summary of this description.We offer this map in spite of these drawbacks, simply because of its rarity.

"Tipus Vindeliciae sive utriusque Bavariae, secundum antiquum et recentiorem situm ab Joanne Aventino olim descriptus, Principibusque eiusdem regionis dedicatus, atque Landshuti editus Anno a Christo nato, 1533"

Kupferradierung nach der Vorlage von Johann Georg Turmair,

latinisiert Johannes Aventinus (1477 Abensberg - Regensburg 1534).

Aventinus schuf 1523 die erste Landkarte von Bayern. Von ihr gab es einen höchst dekorativen Holzschnitt, umrahmt von Wappen bayerischer Städte. 1533 erschien ein Kupferstich von dieser Karte ohne die Umrandung mit dem Titel der Karte in einer typischen Renaissance-Kartusche.

Abraham Ortelius (1527-1598), der 1570 den ersten Weltatlas "Theatrum Orbis Terrarium" in Antwerpen herausgab, erwarb und benutzte diese Kupferplatte für die erste Ausgabe seines Atlas. Obwohl dieser Atlas erst 1570 erschien, wurde die Jahreszahl 1533 natürlich mutgedruckt.

Schon während der ersten Auflage erfuhr Ortelius von der sehr viel präziseren Bayernkarte von Philipp Apian (1531-1589). Er erwarb die Rechte zum Abdruck, während der 1571 erschienenen Auflage des "Theatrums" und ersetzte mitten im Druck die Aventinische Karte gegen die Apiansche Karte aus.

So kam es, dass die Bayernkarte von Johannes Aventinus nur in sehr geringer Zahl gedruckt wurde (1570 die ganze Auflage und 1570 in Teilausgabe). Das macht die Aventunus-Karte zu einer äusserst seltenen und begehrenswerten Karte.

Vindelicien war der Name der römischen Provinz, die im 4 Jahrhundert im Zuge der Reichsreformen Kaiser Diokletians so benannt wurde. Sie umfasste Teile des heutigen bayerischen Schwabens, Oberbayerns und Niederbayerns. Augsburg trug damals den Namen Augusta Vindelicorum.

Die Karte führt die deutschen Städtenamen und, wo vorhanden, die römischen Bezeichnungen. In der West-Ost-Ausdehnung zeigt die Karte von Rain an Lech und Donau sowie Füssen bis Peurbach an der Donau bis St. Wolfgang im Salzkammergut. Im Norden reicht die Karte von Cham bzw. Furt im Wald bis Innsbruck.

In München gibt es eine Katholische Deutsche nichtschlagende Studentenverbindung namens "Vindelicia".

Leichte Altersbräunung. Weite Margen. In der unteren Marge einige Restaurierungen. Die Karte selbst in sehr gutem Zustand.

"Germanicae Nationis Descriptio"

Hand-colored woodcut. Published in "Cosmographia"

By Sebastian Muenster. Basel, ca. 1550

This map is especially charming and interesting because of its south orientation. This "upside-down" look was not totally uncommon in the 16th century (we know also west- and east-oriented maps) as the north orientation of maps was discussed and became the "normal" depiction in the 17th century, at a time when more atlases, charts and maps were produced.

This map of Germany extends from Lübeck to Brixen (Bressanone) and from Antwerp to Danzig (Gdansk). With Bohemia often shown like the heart of Europe surrounded by a heart-shaped belt of forests.

A little creasing in lower left corner and for the most part in margins outside image.

Reverse side has brief description of Germany in Latin. This map is one of the earliest of Central Europe. On the right a mileage scale from 0 to 130.
