Caption

Albernaz's world map. Portuguese cartographer Joao Teixeira Albernaz. The map shows known areas of the Americas and the Far East (both incomplete). The northern and western coast of Australia was being mapped at this time, but Antarctica had yet to be discovered. This map shows the world divided between Spain (Castela, or Castile) and Portugal (across top) along demarcation lines (red) decided by two treaties in 1494 and 1529. Also shown are coastal details, rhumb lines, mountains and rivers, and over 70 labels (key at bottom).
