Norwich 10; V. d. Broecke 8.1; Koeman III, map 8600:31, Lat. ed. - Erster Zustand mit Dat. - A spectacular example with beautiful period hand colouring. This fine early image of the African continent is based on the Gastaldi wall map of 1564. Published in a Latin edition of Ortelius's ground-breaking atlas Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, it is embellished with a ferocious sea battle southeast of Madagascar and several sea monsters in the Atlantic. The drawing of the far eastern coast of Brazil, shown as well below the Equator, differs significantly from the World and America maps.
