A good example of this rare map by Gerard De Jode from the second and last edition of "Speculum Orbis Terrarum" with the "cum privilegio" that was added in 1578 and "fol.32" added to the Latin verso text. De Jode's atlas was the far less successful competitor to Ortelius' popular work and his maps are thus much more rare. The map is oriented with north to the right of the page, as is Ortelius' map, and like many maps of the period, its outline is based on that of Mercator. Decoration is more restrained than its prototype although vignettes of sailing ships in the surrounding waters are still present.
