This rare Italian world map is based on Ortelius's first world map published in 1570 Typus Orbis Terrarum. Maffei's account of the Portuguese accomplishments throughout India and the Far East was first published in 1588. There were several later editions, but only those published in Cologne in 1589 and 1593 contain this world map (Shirley 166).
