Europe, 16th century nautical map

Nautical map of Europe, 1544 copy of Agnese Atlas. Several copies of this atlas were produced between 1536 and 1564, in Venice, by the Italian mapmaker Battista Agnese. The red lines crossing the map (thumb lines) centre on the compass rose at centre of the map, and are used to show distances between points on the map. As a nautical map, only details of the Mediterranean and Western European coasts are shown. The north and Baltic Sea coasts are not labelled. The Baltic coasts and British Isles are not mapped accurately. This edition of the atlas was dedicated to Hieronymus Ruffault, Abbot of St Vaast, Arras, France. It eventually reached the US Library of Congress in 1943
