The second of two single page maps of Bavaria, Germany published by Abraham Ortelius in the ‘Theatrum Orbis Terrarum’. This one is distinguished by the title being at the bottom of the map. It is derived from the map by Erhart Reich published in woodcut in 4 sheets in 1540. Regensberg is easily identified near the centre with ‘Nurnberg’ to the left of the map. Van den Broecke 112a; Karrow 63.
