Caption: Northern hemisphere. A 16th century map of the Northern Hemisphere in a circular projection. The centre of the map is the north pole. Europe and northern Africa is in the upper left, the Middle East at left, India at lower left, south-east Asia at bottom and North America at right. Inscribed at upper right are the family names mentioned in the Book of Genesis, the supposed seats of those families being marked on the map at left. This comes from a fold-out plate from 'A concent of scripture' by Hugh Broughton, published in London between 1587 and 1591.
