Hi Pam,

Parts of the edging f67r2 certainly do look like the two 14th Century Portolan scales described - very interesting link, thanks! :-)

Don't forget also that there are some similar-looking marks on the "castle rosette" on the 9-rosette page, which seem to indicate distance along a canal or river (look at the N-E quadrant, with the castle at N).

Cheers, .....Nick Pelling.....
