Caption: Ocean currents global map. 17th-century map showing ocean currents (dark lines) based on the observations of explorers and mariners. Features include whirlpools and four markings (possibly subterranean tunnels) linking seas and oceans (Black Sea-Caspian Sea; Caspian Sea-Persian Gulf; Mediterranean Sea-Red Sea; and Atlantic-Pacific at Panama). Volcanoes and mountains and rivers are shown in various locations. Areas with poorly understood geography include Australia, California and eastern Asia. This map (German title at lower left: 'Die Ebbe und Fluth auff einer flachen Landt-Karten furgestelt') was published by Eberhard Werner Happel in Ulm in 1687.
