Important and rare map.
Brabant, by Michele Tramezini. 1558

Rare map in its second state, copied first in 1556 by Jacobus Bossius and Michele Tramezini after the Brabant map of 1536 by Jacob van Deventer. He made a set of maps of the five provinces of the Northern Netherlands, of which no copies are known. The first editions were made in Antwerp 1556-1560, followed by the adaptions published by Tramezini, whose series in turn were later copied by Forlani.


Michele Tramezzino (15?? – 1579)

Venetian printer and publisher with two workshops, one in Rome with his brother Francesco and one in Venice ‘all Insegna della Sibille’.
Both brothers, Michele and Francesco were born in Rome, although the family took refuge in Venice in 1527, fleeing the sack of Rome. Francesco returned to Rome, and Michele remained in Venice. The brothers have been printing maps, stamps and literary, historical and legal works since 1551. Their production was very copious and was always accompanied by a typographic mark that represented the figure of the Sibyl.
In 1554, Michele Tramezzino published a world map which stands on its own as a masterpiece of Renaissance cartography.
