This handsome map first appeared in the 1532 Basel edition of Huttich and Grynaeus's 'Novus orbis regionum', and is adorned with border vignettes attributed to Hans Holbein the Younger (1497–1543). The most compelling vignettes feature winged angels at the poles turning the World on its axis with crank handles, suggesting Copernicus's theory of the rotation of the Earth thirteen years before the publication of his 'De Revolutionibus'. Geographically the map is quite antiquated, particularly its depiction of North America as the narrow "Terra de Cuba," but the multitude of embellishments—sea-monsters, mermaids, ships, winged serpents, an elephant, native peoples, hunting scenes, and cannibals preparing a meal—offer some compensation.
