The Atlas, made by the cartographer, Abraham Ortelius, in 1570, is considered among experts to be the first Atlas known to man, in the sense that it included, for the first time, all the cartographic information available at that point in history. It also brought it all together in an orderly and uniform manner, providing not only maps for each region of the known world but also information on each region’s history, gastronomy, crafts, trade etc.

A gem that no book enthusiast should miss.
