A detailed map of Egypt centered on the river Nile. Publication: Geographiae universae tum veteris, tum novae absolutissimum opus... The map comes from a scarce pirate edition published by Petrus Keschedt in Cologne one year after the publication of Magini's original work. Ortelius informed Magini in November 1597 about this and the publication was stopped till 1608 when a new edition was issued by Keschedt. Although the map is based on Magini's 1596 Geographiae it is in fact a new plate.
The Magini's 1596 edition of Geographiae was the first reduced size version of Mercator's atlas.
