Carte de l'Islande

Author:
Jacques Nicolas Bellin
Country:
France
Publication year:
1764
 
The map comes from one of Bellin's map collections, Le petit atlas maritime. It is a reduced copy of the map in Niels Horrebow's book about Iceland. Place-names are about 100 but only 12 of them come from Horrebow. Others are taken from older maps, probably from the version by Gerhard Mercator.
