"Americae Sive Novi Orbis Nova Descriptio"
Published by Abraham Ortelius, 1570
This landmark map of the Americas was first published in Abraham Ortelius' Theatrum Orbis Terrarum of 1570-75.
Ortelius embellished this first edition map with his signature sea monsters and sailing ships, and the southern ocean is filled with Ptolemy's mythical Great Southern Continent.
This exceptional and beautifully colored reproduction map is a classic example of this great cartographer's art.
