World planisphere, by Urbano Monte - 1587

This world map by Urbano Monte is the largest known early planisphere of the world. It was hand drawn by Monte in Milan, Italy in 1587. The north polar azimuthal projection of Monte's planisphere demonstrates the advanced scientific knowledge of the time. The artistry is of the highest level and gives us, through precise imagery, many historical resource, listing places, shape of spaces and commentary on science, art, and history. The degree of detail and decoration is stunning and unique in the history of cartography. The map was originally created to serve as a geographical tool but also informs on climate, customs, length of day and distances within regions.
