Date of the oldest item in the CNS. Itís a map by famed Italian cartographer Ramusio portraying Newfoundland as a series of islands. Ramusio created fictional inlets and rivers through the centre of Newfoundland and added illustrations of elegant men in knee breeches and women in flowing gowns hunting and lounging in the landscape. Many copies of the Ramusio map were printed and it was actually used as a chart for navigating the area.
