Erythraei Sive Rubri Mari Periplus ... : A. Ortelius

click here to view a large version in a separate window

From an Italian text edition of Ortelius' 'Theatrum', this is the first state of a finely engraved plate for the "Parergon". The map shows the coasts of the Indian Ocean with insets of the Mediterranean illustrating Ulysses' voyages, the northwest coast of Africa, from where King Hanno was said to have sailed around Africa, and a roundel map at top right, showing a single landmass at the north pole with optimistically clear waterways around the northern landmasses. This attractive map includes a fascinating feature in showing a land-bridge joining the Malay peninsula to Sumatra.
