Miniature map of Spain and Portugal with good detail. Tiny ships sail the seas and the title is enclosed in a strapwork cartouche. This map is from a pocket edition of Abraham Ortelius' Theatrum. The maps were copied from Phillip Galle's final edition of 1598 but were drawn and engraved by Ambrose and Ferdinand Arsenius with wide borders with latitude and longitude shown.
