ANTIQUE FRAMED ARCTIC AND SCANDINAVIA MAP

TITLE : SEPTENTRIONALIVM REGIONVM DESCRIP.

Septentrionalivm Regionvm Descrip. – Arctic and Scandinavia

Cartographer : Abrahim Ortelius

Coloring : Uncolored

Size : 19 x14 inches (48.3 x 35.6 cms)

Condition : Very Good+

Description :

Ortelius based this influential map on the work of earlier authorities including Mercator, Zeno and Magnus. Of particular interest are the mythical islands of Brasil, Frisland, Drogeo, Icaria, and St. Brendan. Part of Mercator's imaginary polar continent is depicted with a note that it is inhabited by pigmies. Iceland (Islant, Thule) is basically unchanged from Mercator´s map of Europe from 1554 with the shape originated by Zeno. Greenland is separated from Europe by a wide sea and a portion of North America appears in the upper left corner with the name Estotilant. The map is adorned with a variety of very inventive creatures including a half-man, half-sea creature playing a lute. Latin text on verso.
