Caption

Europe. Published in 1700, this map by the Dutch cartographer Frederick de Witt (1630-1706) shows the latest knowledge of the geography of Europe. The mapping has improved greatly on earlier maps, though there are still errors and distortions of scale. The inscriptions are in Latin. The title banner at upper left is being carried by cherubs, and below that is a depiction of the mythological tale of Europa, carried away by Zeus who took the form of a white bull. The continent of Europe is named after Europa.
