Rare map of Germany with the surrounding countries by Gerard de Jode. Showing the domain of the Roman-German emperors in the late 16th century. Rare, as it only appeared in the last edition of the Speculum Orbis Terrae, published two years after Gerard's death by his son Cornelius de Jode in 1593.
The map extends from the Netherlands to Poland and from Holstein in the north to Switzerland and northern Italy in the south. At the bottom left a large title cartouche with the Emperor enthroned, flanked by the seven Electors, each with a small coat of arms below.
