East African ports. Africa, mostly under the control of sultans of the Ottoman Empire but also key parts of the trade route between Europe and Asia. Across top: Aden (Aden in present-day Yemen) with Portuguese ships. Below, from left to right are: Mombaza (Mombasa in present-day Kenya); Qviloa (Kilwa in present-day Tanzania); and Cefala (Sofala in present-day Mozambique).

This atlas was edited by Georg Braun (c.1540-1622) and largely engraved by Franz Hogenberg.
