Caption: Map of Europe. This is taken from the World Atlas of Frederick de Wit, dated 1689. The coastline of continental Europe is remarkably accurate, although some of the islands are slightly mis- shapen. Note also that the political shape of Europe, especially in the east, is very different to that of today.
