Charming miniature world map on an oval projection based on Ortelius. The map is similar to the one Bertius supplied for Barent Langenes' Caert-Thresoor except this plate does not contain the signature of Jodocus Hondius as the engraver. Strapwork designs fill the corners and the title above and the motto "Domini Est Terra Et Plenitudo Eius" at bottom.
