This map locates all the islands in the chain: Corvo, Flores, Faial, Pico, Sao Jorge, Graciosa, Terceira, Sao Miguel and Santa Maria. Despite the importance of these islands in Atlantic navigation since the beginning of the Age of Discovery, there are still numerous errors in the sizes, shapes, and locations of the islands. Many coastal features are named and topography is shown via hachure. The elegant title cartouche is surrounded by a keyboard-style border.
