Charming set of miniature maps. The world map depicts a strange North America with a large sea protruding into the western coastline and no Baja Peninsula. On the Americas map North America is shown in the more typical format for the period and a small cartouche covers the West Coast with a note concerning the discoveries of Admiral de Fuentes. Sizes vary slightly with the world map being slightly larger (6 x 3.8") than the rest.
Attractive later color. Couple of small foxing spots in blank margins.
