The Miller Atlas, named after its former owner, is a collection of nautical charts completed in 1519. Commissioned by the King of Portugal Manuel I, it is a masterpiece of Portuguese cartography resulting from the collaboration of several cartographers and artists: Lopo Homem, Pedro Reinel, Jorge Reinel and the illuminator Antonio de Holanda. It was intended to show the power and expanse of the Portuguese Empire, which extended from Brazil to Indonesia. This portolan opens onto a world map centred on the Portuguese hemisphere as delimited in 1494 by the Treaty of Tordesillas. The subsequent regional maps cover the entire known world at the time, except for Africa, the map of which went missing.
