The atlas, Theatrum orbis terrarum, by Abraham Ortelius was a large book and rather expensive. So it was not very long before someone started making it more accessible to the public by reducing the maps. This new version of the collection, called Epitome, was published in many languages. Here we see a map from an edition of the Epitome by Johannes Vrients. The change in size has claimed many of the place-names and all the creatures in the sea.
