This tiny map is a reduced version of the important map of De Laet, 1630. It is a simple map of the coastlines of the Americas with many rivers and bays and a few place names. The most notable place named on the East Coast of North America is C. Cod. There are no Great Lakes shown in North America and conspicuously absent is the mythical Lake Parime in South America. It is adorned with a relatively large title cartouche.
