Based on a 1583 portolan chart by Joan Martines in the Newberry's collections, this map mug is 11 oz. of cartographic majesty.

Used by sailors in the Middle Ages, portolan charts helped them to navigate from port to port in the Mediterranean, allowing them to plot a course and then decide which of the 16 rhumb lines emanating from the compass rose to follow.
