Chet Van Duzer, Jacob M. Price Visiting Research Fellow at the Clements Library, examines the differences between Martin Waldseemüller’s Carta marina of 1516 and his more famous 1507 map. Van Duzer says the Carta marina is more interesting than the 1507 map in several ways, and is the result of Waldseemüller’s radical re-evaluation of what a world map should be.
