  1. The Carta Marina was originally published in 1539. There are a couple of versions of it around. Here’s a big one, and some details from the map. You can visit a version of the map at the National Geographic site, and click around, zoom in etc. I love the sea-creatures in this map, ever since I spotted them in a monster book I owned as a child.
