Frisland

Author:
Pietro de Nobili
Country:
Italy
Publication year:
1590
 
Frisland appears as a name of an island south of Iceland on many old maps depicting the North Atlantic region. In Nicolo Zeno's book and map of 1558 it is very prominent. Frisland was probably an amalgamation of Iceland and the Faroes and the double of both of them.
This map is a re-print of Antonio Lafreri's map of Frisland who in turn probably had the Zeno map as model.
