Caption: Map of climactic zones, 13th century. The map (upper right) is labelled in Latin, with the Earth's polar regions marked 'frigida' (cold), with the temperate zones and a 'Mediterranean' equatorial zone also marked. This manuscript page is thought to have been produced in Therouanne in what is now northern France in the later part of the 13th century (after 1277). It consists of tempera colours, pen and ink, gold leaf, and gold paint on parchment. This is the verso of folio 156 from the Ludwig XV 4 collection of manuscripts, held at the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, California, USA.
