I came across this image today, and it left curious: Europe 15th Century Colbeck Map (http://mappery.com/map-of/Europe-15th-Century-Colbeck-Map)

Does anyone know what type of projection this map uses? I want to say Albers, but I'm not sure.

Thanks.

The parallels appear to be closer spaced in the middle, and wider toward the top and bottom, so I'd say Lambert. Albers would be the other way around.
