The manuscript atlas entitled, "Cosmographie Universelle selon le navigateurs, tant anciens que modernes", was made by Le Testu (in 1555, or 1556) for Gaspard de Coligny, a leader of the French Huguenots, who had been made an admiral in the French navy in 1552. It was based on a collection of charts from French, Spanish and Portuguese sources, furnished by the Admiral. The maps vary widely in accuracy and contain inhabitants, animals and plants, many of them quite imaginary. It is a highly decorative and valuable historical resource
