Polar projection 'Septentrionalium terrarum' by Mercator

This plate was fist published in 1595 in the posthumous part III of Mercator's Atlas. It records recent attempts by Frobisher and Davis to find the North-West Passage, and shows the pole surrounded by islands between which flow rivers carrying the world's oceans. The magnetic pole is shown as a rock near the Strait of Anian. Three circular maps of islands inset in the corners of the map: Shetland, Frisland [mythical] and Farre.
