From Abraham Ortelius' renowned "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum" - the first systematically conceived "modern" atlas. A good example of this attractive and important map which became the standard depiction of the continent for the rest of the 16th century. As one of the earliest obtainable maps ofthe whole continent, the detail summarises the confusing internal information, based on Ptolemaic sources, hearsay and legend, allied to the relatively correct coastal knowledge. The map has an elegant classical title cartouche, and vignettes including a sea battle raging in the Southern Ocean.
