Notes

Map of the world copied by Belleforest from the 1570 world map drawn by Ortelius and published in his French edition of Münster Cosmographica published in 1575. It is dominated by a large, encompassing Terra Australis Nondum Cognita, which includes Tierra del Fuego. Note the disproportionate bulge along the coast of Chile in the continent of South America. It retains most of the detail of the Ortelius map, including its decorative cloud borders. Relief is shown pictorially.

Plate 114 from: La Cosmographie universelle de tout le monde / auteur en partie Munster, mais beaucoup plus augmentee, ornee & enrichie, par François de Belleforest. A Paris : Chez Michel Sominius, rue S. Jacques, à l'escu de Basle, 1575.
