This map, published by Ortelius in 1570, shows the North Atlantic, and is rife with common cartographic errors. The island of Frisland, comes from the Zeno map of 1558; Iceland itself is divided by a number of rivers. Also from Zeno’s map are “Estotiland” and “Icaria.” A number of imagined islands, including “St. Brendan” and “Brazil.” “Groclandt,” to the west of Greenland, is borrowed from Mercator’s maps, as is the Arctic continent labeled “Pigmei hic habitant” - “pygmies live here.”
