Further Information

This stunning map was originally printed as part of the Atlas Maritimus and it shows the world in two hemispheres. North and South America are depicted with the northwest part of North America blank. It also includes a map and schematic drawing of the moon and three drawings of planetary orbits according to Copernicus, Ptolemy, and Tycho Brahe, as well as a diagram of Earth's solar orbit. Decorative elements include scenes from the four seasons with accompanying astrological signs (spring is shown with a cupid or angel, fall with harvest scene and reapers of wheat, summer with scene of Bacchus and grape harvest, and winter with skaters and an old man by a fire), a bird or eagle, dragon, rabbits, and sea monster (perhaps symbolizing the four elements). Cartographic elements include lines of latitude and longitude. California is shown as an island.
