A fine map based on the cartography of Hessel Gerritsz. The map includes Mexico through Costa Rica with nice detail. Also includes the U.S. Gulf coast, southwest Florida and a bit of Cuba with less detail. Large pictorial cartouche depicting Native Americans loading goods for a European trader.
Nice impression and wide original margins. Some short tears and light foxing in blank margins, well away from map. Couple of minor creases in map.
