Approximate number of copies printed: 6575.

States: 151.1 as described.
151.2: from 1592L onwards, the shading in the strapwork on the extreme right of the cartouche changes from oblique to horizontal/vertical crosswork shading. Stippling extended to within lettering "Scala Milliarum Hungaricorum". Moreover, the lower right hand corner of the plate breaks off in 1602S. The size of the broken off triangle is 22 mm horiz. by 17 mm vert. In 1612S this damage has progressed to 30 mm horiz. by 25 mm vertical. Remarkably, some editions later than 1602S (e.g. some copies from 1603L, 1606E as in T.O.T. facsimile) do not show this damage, pointing to use of sheets that had been printed before 1602.
151.3: in 1641, the ornamental border of the entire plate is renewed and scale numbers are added. Also numerous topographical changes, e.g. "Montes Crapak" added in upper left corner, to the right of the dedication. The lower right corner has now been repaired.
