[Bay of Biscay]
Woodcut covering the coastline from the Lizard Peninsula in England to the Strait of Gibraltar. Perhaps due to space restrictions, the English Channel appears closed off between England and France. The map is accompanied by a written description of the movement of English fleets.
Prime Meridian is unknown due to lack of graticule grid. Scale was deteremined by measuring from the tip of Cape Finisterre , Portugal, to the northern point of Cadiz.
