A fine example of the Matthias Quad (1557-1613) map of most of Moravia engraved by Johann Bussemacher and published in Cologne. The map is drawn from the Abraham Ortelius of 1573, itself drawn from the work of the mathematician Paulus Fabricius (1529-88). Resident in Vienna, he became university professor and imperial astronomer. His map of Moravia firt appeared in 1569. This version by Quad was first published in ‘Europae Totius Orbis Terrarum’ in 1594. This example is from the ‘Geographisch Handtbuch’ published in 1600. Refer Karrow (1993) 1/85; Meurer (1988) Qua 6.
