Rare and important map of Scandinavia from Olaus Magnus' Historia Olai Magni gothi archiepiscop upsalensis, de gentium septentrionalium, published in Basel in 1567.
The map follows the famous Carta marina of O. Magnus himself, publ. In 9 sheets in 1539. Scandinavia itself in a narrow and long-drawn shape, showing also Scotland, Iceland and Gruntlandia in the far north.
In the thirty years between the appearance of both maps cartography had made some progress.
These improvements have been included whenever possible. Only recently the monogram was attributed to the Swiss woodcutter Thomas Weber instead by false interpretation to Fickler of Weil, the German translator of M.'s work.

Reference: Ginsburg, Printed Maps of Scandinavia #23.
