During the Golden Age of Dutch Cartography, many world maps were
composed of two hemispheres, one for each of the Eastern and Western
Hemispheres. However, this elaborately decorated world map projected
the world on Northern and Southern Hemispheres, an orientation that
was rarely used at this time. This unusual map appeared in Cornelis de
Jodes 1593 edition of an atlas publication that was initiated by his
father, Gerard, in 1578. Although Corneliss world map did not use the cordiform projection preferred by his
father, it did employ a similar border scheme of windheads and clouds.
