From Muck on the Scottish west coast, around the north coast to include the Orkneys and south along the English east coast to Harwich. This elegant and early chart was finely engraved for "Dell'Arcano Del Mare ..." by the renowned Florentine, Antonio Francesco Lucini. The chart is elegantly designed with little of the flamboyance sometimes associated with the series but has a large title cartouche at top right. Sir Robert Dudley's work was justly famous, not just for the quality of its engraving but also as the first atlas of sea charts of the whole world, the first to be uniformly presented on Mercator's projection, and the first produced by an Englishman, albeit one exiled to Italy. A good example.
