"Islandia"

Published by Abraham Ortelius, 1589

This map first appeared in Abraham Ortelius' Typus Orbis Terrarum in 1589, Latin edition.

This classic facsimile depicts Mt. Hekla erupting with fire and illustrates the island of Iceland surrounded by mythical sea monsters, no doubt inspired by early descriptions of walruses and whales.
