Detail showing IoM

The Island is based on Speed but elongated with only four place names (chosen I suspect for ease of placement rather than importance - Kalf of Man, St Andreu, Craston, Onchan

It appeared aspart of a collection of sea charts in Volume Five of Jan Jansson's Atlas Novus - the title of the Atlas reflecting the language (Latin, Dutch, French or German text on reverse tho some copies are blank on reverse) - later editions in 1652, a 2nd state of map, in which the seas are named, is found in 1657 & 1659 editions
