Charming map of the continents with California as an island. The Great Lakes are shown open-ended in the west and a large river emanates from a large inland lake and flows into the sea between the mainland and California. In South America there is a large lake in Guyana and the Uruguay River, here called the Paraguay, appears much larger than the Amazon. The Insulae Solomis are prominent in the Pacific with Quiri Regio partially outlined. Title cartouche includes explorers and cherubs using navigation instruments.
