Woodcut map of the British Isles and the northern European coast by Sebastian Münster (based on Ptolemy’sGeographia) is contained within a trapezoidal frame with markings of latitude and longitude in the borders. The sea is marked with wavy lines in the manner of medieval maps, and a high-pooped vessel fills the empty space north of Scotland. The two panels of text list the ancient tribes of Britain and Ireland respectively. The contemporary annotator has specified time differences at the different lines of latitude.
