Due to several requests, I have translated into English the legends of the Catalan Atlas (1375) as they appear in the different panels of this work attributed to Cresques Abraham. The translations are based on Diáfora's facsimile of the Catalan Atlas (El Atlas Catalán de Cresques Abraham, Diáfora, 1975). This facsimile has the legends transcribed to Catalan and also translated into Spanish. I consulted both the Catalan and the Spanish to come up with my English translations. The accompanying images of the legends I have added are extracted from the Bibliothèque Nationale de France (BnF.)
