Antonio de Herrera Y Tordelisllas was the official historian to the King of Spain and compiled a history of the Spanish conquests in the Americas. This simple outline map shows the coastline from Rio Copiapo to the Gulf of Ancud and locates Santiago, Valdivia and a few other cities. The lack of detail is in keeping with the official policy of protecting Spanish knowledge in the New World.
Wormholes in large blank margins, well away from map.
