16th century world map Featured 9 Nov 2004 Print

16th century world map

World map, published around 1565 in Venice, Italy, by Italian mapmaker Ferando Bertelli. The title of the map: Universale Descrittione di Tutta la Terra Conosciuta Fin Qui (universal description to the end of the known Earth). In the past few hundred years, the Americas (left) and the sea passage to India around Africa, and the islands of South-East Asia, had all been discovered, but these regions remained poorly mapped. This map shows a vast and unknown continent to the south, and Australia has not yet been discovered. Illustrations of ships and strange sea creatures are seen on the oceans, and strange animals are seen on the unknown lands. The winds are represented at upper right and left

Magellans route, 16th century map Featured 9 Nov 2004 Print

Magellans route, 16th century map

Magellan's route around the world, in a 1544 copy of the Agnese Atlas. Magellan's route is shown as a dark line. Ferdinand Magellan (c.1480-1521) set sail from Seville, Spain, in August 1519 with five ships. He sailed south and west around the tip of South America and then sailed for 100 days across the Pacific. Magellan died in the Philippines, and only a single ship completed the circumnavigation, returning to Spain in September 1522. The lighter line shows a route across the Atlantic from Spain to Central America and then to Peru. Twelve wind cherubs are also shown. This atlas was produced in Venice by Italian mapmaker Battista Agnese. The US Library of Congress acquired this edition in 1943
