Cartographically this map is derived from Ortelius’ map of 1570 which included the erroneous bulge along the Chilean coast and a large group of fictitious islands in the Atlantic. This map was engraved by the Italian master engraver Girolamo Porro. A fine impression. From the first edition. Retains 24 page Latin text description of the two continents. Maps
