Description :Stunning map of the kingdom of the mythical Christian king who according to legend provided a stronghold against Barbarians and was an ally to the crusaders. Ortelius designed this map himself using geographical information including Gastaldi's 1564 map of Africa.

This decorative map includes two pair of large elephants in the interior and sea monsters and an oared ship in the Atlantic. There are two large strapwork cartouches, one enclosing the title and the other with text of the legend.
Interestingly the first number of the pagenumber has been printed upside down. According to Marcel van den Broecke a Latin text version with the page number "68" (or 69) was published in 1575. The lower part of the first number has partly been erased.
