Abraham Ortelius has made many beautiful maps during his time as a cartographer, and one of the most beautiful has certainly been Septentrionalivm regionvm descrip cum priuilegio, the Nordic regions. The map here is a reproduction of his edition from 1573, which was part of perhaps the first major recognized Atlas, Theatrum Orbis Terrarum.
