Attractive and unusual map of the island of Sri Lanka with north oriented to the right of the map. Only a bit of the Indian mainland is shown and it is incorrectly depicted to the east of the island.

Strapwork title cartouche, an unusual compass rose and a stipple engraved sea combine to make this a very attractive map.

This map was engraved by Girolamo Porro and issued in Porcacchi's L'Isole piu Famose del Mondo in 1575.

Set in a page of text.

Cartouche, sea monsters,compass rose.
