From the "Accuratissima Orbis Antiqui Delineatio" with a text written by Georgius Hornius. An unusual map centred on the Indian Ocean or Erythraean Sea as it was known to the Ancient World, and extending from the Horn of Africa to the Malay Peninsula and Java. Sea monsters and sailing ships decorate the ocean itself and an attractive title cartouche contains an acknowledgement from the author, 'Nunc Vero ab Abrah. Ortelio'. Two inset maps to the upper corners show Annonis Periplus and Hyperborei, the North Pole. A further interesting feature is the land connection intimated between Malaya and Sumatra at lower right.
