Map of Europe from Diogo Homem´s Universal Atlas 1 identical illumination

This double-page lavish illumination is a ´quasi-original´ of the map in Diogo Homen´s Atlas Universal, made on a special paper that renders the feel and properties of parchment.

Diogo Homem´s work is an emblematic example of the far-reaching nature and exceptional value of nautical cartography produced in the 16th century western Iberian Peninsula. This beautiful atlas will always be considered one of the most brilliant achievements within this style of cartography.
