Poster with the first modern atlas and world map, Theatrum Orbis Terrarum. The map was painted in 1570 by the famous Flemish artist and geographer Abraham Ortelius.

Ortelius is believed to be the first person to think that the continents once came together as a unit before slipping apart to their current positions. He pointed to the geometric similarities between the American coast and the European-African coast and suggested continental drift as an explanation. Original of Ortelius maps are very popular with collectors and have sold for hundreds of thousands of dollars.
