"Typus Orbis Terrarum"

This superb reproduction of the historically significant map by Abraham Ortelius was first published in the Latin edition of his atlas. Though remarkably precise for its time, there were some notable inaccuracies, namely, the westerly bulge of South America (which was corrected in 1587), and a massive Southern Continent that was not rectified until the voyages of Captain Cook 200 years later.
