Description:Orig. handcol. worldmap (31.5 x 44 cm). Antwerpen, Ortelius, c1590
Note:This interesting map presents the regions of the earth that were known in classic times within a large oval projection showing the relative size of the now-known world. The map extends into Asia as far east as Sumatra and south to Madagascar and the Mountains of the Moon in Africa. The climate zones are shown as Zona frigida, temperata, and torrida, with the Zona frigida noted as being uninhabitable. An ornate border surrounds the map and incorporates four small insets: Europe, Asia, Africa and America representing the "modern" world
