    “He had brought a large map representing the sea,

    Without the least vestige of land:

    And the crew were much pleased when they found it to be

    A map they could all understand.”

    From  ‘La Sphere du Monde’1549, by Oronce Fine.

    You can find more illustrations from this book here.

    However interesting these may seem, Fine’s ideas were not original and he was looked down upon by most of his contemporaries. 

    Fine’s scientific work may be briefly characterised as encyclopaedic, elementary, and unoriginal. It appears that the goal of his publications, which range in subject from astronomy to instrumental music, was to popularise the university science that he himself had been taught.
