Attractive rare small world 'Navigare'

First appearing in Porcacchi's 'Isolario' in 1572, here this example is from 1713's Universus Terrarum Orbis Scriptorum Calamo Delineatus by Alphonsus Lasor à Varea,

It covers most of the world, excluding far eastern Asia and the western coast of North America; thus alluding to a connection between the two. The Terra Incognita landmass dominates the bottom of the map. The handsome map is filled with rhumb lines and the seas are fully stippled. Taken from a sheet
