A CHANGING WORLD: The great French cartographer Guillaume de L'Isle made the first version of this map in 1700. This 1745 version by Amsterdam map publisher Covens & Mortier adds a seascape at the bottom, combining realistic clipper ships on the horizon with a fanciful mermaid and a merman accompanied by sea monsters. It also includes geography that had been discovered in the interim, such as the fact that Japan was an island and not attached to the mainland of Asia.

Very interesting. I've seen the Psalter world map before (mappa mundi) from 1265. It deals less with accurate geography than it does with politics, ethnography, and the Bible. At the center of the map is Jerusalem.

A map of Japan (like the one in the first trailer) will come in handy so Lara can know where she is compared to the nearby mainland (and thus, the closest means of escape).
