Celebrating Magellan's Circumnavigation in 1522

A striking map of the world on Cassini's projection by Heinrich Scherer.

California is shown as an Island. Nova Hollandia is now clearly separated from Nova Guinea, although without a Southern Coastline. Northwest and Northeast passages are shown. New Zealand appears, although only a part of its coastline is known.

The map shows Magellan's circumnavigation of the world, with the route and dates. The map is ringed by various cartouches and elegant decorative scenes.
