Historical Context: Forgery of a map which first appeared in the 1570 edition of Ortelius' Theatrum Orbis Terrarum. The forgery was created using a photographic process in the mid-20th century. Some elements that note it's a forgery are the date added below the title, the weak stippling, the wide plate-mark, and the overall "flat" effect of the map visually.
