[In the collection of maps and plans belonging to the Central Library of the State University Centre at Mons (Belgium) there is a copy of the Tabula Peutingeriana, editio princeps, Antwerp, Plantin-Moretus, 1598. This copy, which was acquired in 1960, forms part of the Puissant Collection. There appear to be only two copies of this itinerary in Belgium: in the Royal Library, Brussels, and at Mons. The Royal Library also possesses the incomplete Venice edition, produced by Aldus in 1591. Prior to 1914 the University of Louvain also owned a copy. The Tabula at Mons is a roll, 4.08 metres long, with a linen backing; the Brussels copy is preserved in an oblong binding 52 cm. in length. This itinerary has become well-known, notably through the labours of K. Miller, and also because it has been published on various occasions since the 17th century, either with the help of the Antwerp plates of 1398, or with the use of other plates, or by means of modern reproduction processes, especially lithography. The medieval manuscript forming the source of this edition is housed in the Österreichische Nationalbibliothek at Vienna. The edition of 1598 consisted of 250 copies; at this moment the whereabouts of 10 of these are known (Cf. p. 210, note 1). The author would be very grateful for information about the existence and location of any copies unknown to her., In the collection of maps and plans belonging to the Central Library of the State University Centre at Mons (Belgium) there is a copy of the Tabula Peutingeriana, editio princeps, Antwerp, Plantin-Moretus, 1598.
