Ortelius, [Untitled Frontispiece to the Epitome] Antwerp, 1589. 3 x 4. BW SOLD

Unusual iconography: instead of the traditional enthronement God is seated on a cannon, a manifestation, perhaps, of His omnipotence. Prudence and Truth are on either side of the deity whose face is obscured by a large orb. Latin text verso. Koeman, Atlantes Neerlandici, Ort 53.
