Published in the same year as the first edition (in Latin), this was Volume V of Jansson's 'Novus Atlas'. There were two parts: the first was what Koeman describes as the 'first real sea-atlas'; and the second contained ten maps that would become part of Jansson's atlas of the Ancient World, 'Accuratissima orbis antiqui delineatio' two years later.
The 23 plates of the sea atlas (all but the two polar maps newly engraved) include some of Jansson's most dramatic, especially a compass rose surrounded by wind heads, North & South Atlantic, the Indian Ocean and the Pacific. The ten ancient maps are a world map and nine maps of Greece and the Balkan Peninsula, mostly after Johannes Laurenberg.
