This tiny map is a reduced version of the important 1630 map by De Laet. 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. By comparison, the west coast shows many place names. 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.
