Typus orbis terrarum. Description universelle de tout le monde. Map of the world copied by François de Belleforest (1530-1583) from the 1570 world map drawn by Ortelius and published in his French edition of Munster 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. This plate 114 is taken from La Cosmographie universelle de tout le monde by Francois de Belleforest published by Chez Michel Sominius in Paris (France) in 1575.
