"Typus Orbis Terrarum, Ad Imitationem Universalis Gerhardi Mercatoris"

Published by Quad, 1596

Matthias Quad of Cologne published his highly decorative map of the World circa 1596, after an earlier work by Gerhard Mercator. Quad's limited knowledge of the Americas and the Pacific Ocean is self-evident, and he also included the mythical Ptolemic Great Southern Continent.

In this superb reproduction of the original, note the inclusion of a portrait of Jesus Christ in the upper, left-hand portion of the map.
