This is a very unusual Italian map of the world, on Mercator's projection, focusing on the topographical features of the continents, without political detail. The southern coastline of Australia is indistinct, but Tasmania is shown as an island. The northern coastline of Alaska and Canada is also shown by dotted lines.
