This map is part of a set of five mini maps by Mecator. Here is the double hemispheric global map. Split into The Old World and The New World. Terra Australis Incognita sprawls across the bottom of both maps. At the southern most tip of South America Tierra del Fuego is connected to the huge land mass of Terra Australis. The western boundaries of North America are subject to speculation and almost reach across both maps. The right map shows the Old world with Europe being the most detailed. Japan appears as a single small Island and the seas are relatively void with the exception of a sea monster off the coast of Australia. Between the maps the space is wonderfully full with gorgeous borders.
