Mercator's world map

In 1569, Gerhard Mercator presented his world map to the public for the first time. The 1 meter 34 by 2 meter 12 meter card was given the title addition: "for marine use". It was later divided into 20 single sheets and published in a book. Long awaited by the captains of the world.
