 Notes
Statement of Responsibility: Guillaume de L'Isle.
General Note: The map area covers the entire Mediterranean region eastward to India; north to the lower Scandinavian Peninsula and south to middle Egypt.
General Note: There are cartographic notes in Latin and English commending on why earlier mapmakers drew certain features on maps.
General Note: The map is a representation of the Roman World as described by Pliny the Elder (23-79 A.D.) and reprinted in the popular Natural History (ca. 1600).
General Note: The importance of the Holy Land is shown by placing it at the center of the map, i.e., the universe.
General Note: In upper left and upper right corners are the two world spheres labeled "Supplementum Theatro Historico."
General Note: Latitude and Longitude and the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn are all shown reflecting the shifting to more scientific measurements of the early Greeks.
General Note: It uses the first Meridian of Longitude according to Ptolemy.
General Note: While the cartouche is decorative, it contains four scales indicating that map readability and contents were now being emphasized.
General Note: The boundaries of the Roman Empire are outlined in color as are the adjacent areas.
