Remarks: According to some, Mercator drew and engraved this map himself.
This map is followed by plate Ort 76. These two maps are very similar, but on the present plate 75 compass directions are not mentioned in the corners, whereas they are on the later plate 76. The lady at the bottom does not wear a hat on Ort75 but wears a pointed hat on Ort76. Texts of Ort75, Ort76 and Ort77 are very similar.
