Early second state of this influential map of the Arctic, including Scandinavia, Iceland, Greenland and part of the North American continent, includes also the legendary islands of i.a. Drogeo, Frisland and Icaria.
Ortelius' map shows also the influence of the work of earlier authorities: Mercator's 1569 world map, the infamous 1558 Zeno map of the north, Olaus Magnus' map of the Northern regions and the Carta Marina of 1539. There is a good outline of the Scandinavian coast, bordering the Mare Congelatum, the frozen waters of the Arctic. Aterse note on the nature of the cliffs at Nordkapp is given.
