World Vol 1 Mercator 1636-Europe-Britain-Ireland-Germany-V-aa-4

An extensive suite of world maps by Gerard Mercator 1512 -1594. He was a most accomplished mapmaker and inventor of the Mercator Projection system of displaying maps accurately. The term “Atlas” comes from a picture on the frontpiece of the atlas showing the world on the shoulders of Atlas. The atlas was first published in 1585 and so shows how the world was depicted at the end of the 16th century. Vol 1 includes maps of Europe, Britain & Ireland and Germany.
