Compiled from Gerard Mercator's world map of 1569, this rendition was drawn by Mercator's grandson (also named Gerard) in 1595, and published later by Hondius. The map is typical of 16th century cartography with considerable fantastic detail in the interior. The depiction of the Nile is based on Ptolemy's geography with some complex modifications from various sources, including Abyssinian monks. The source of the Nile is shown as a series of lakes located in the Lune montes just north of the Tropic of Capricorn. Another branch of the Nile flows from the west, with this system rambling through what is the Sahara Desert. Mercator adds a lake named Sac. Haf lac, from the 1507 Waldseemuller world map. This lake feeds both the Zambere River and the Nile. In Abissini, the legendary Christian King Prester John sits on his throne. The boldly engraved oceans, beautiful calligraphy, and strapwork cartouche (surmounted by two satyrs) make this a decorative masterpiece.
Published by Hondius, Amsterdam, 1619.

Attenzione: alcuni elementi della pagina sono stati tradotti automaticamente.I put it neutral and i ll make it positive when `i ll receive itAttenzione: alcuni elementi della pagina sono stati tradotti automaticamente.Dear Nikolaos,
This is not the way the feedback works and frankly Im a little bit surprised and upset with the negative feedback. (My first one)
I have done everything in my power to track your parcel. First of all I send it to you a day after payment. Then when I got your email and you said you didnt yet got the package, I replied immediately. And we were going to wait a couple of days, before I would contact PostNL. In the mean time you send numerous emails in a couple of days. To which I also replied immediately with the upmost care and respect. To people who read this: recieved first email about the package the 1st of march its now the 6th. In which I allready contacted the postal delivery office, who are looking into it.
Now a day after the contact with PostNL I recieve this feedback. I dont think thats really fair. The only one you can blame right now is the postal delivery.
So to recap and to say what I have allready said: everything will be okay, they look into it and you will recieve the package. If this doesnt happen, which i cant imagine, you will recieve a full refund and I will get it back from the insurance.
