This interesting map of the North Atlantic shows parts of the European, African and American continents with Iceland and Greenland at top. From the report of Martin Pring's journey from England to New England in 1603, the sea routes of Captain Pring from the British Isles through the Azores to Plymouth are depicted. Virginia extends into what is present-day Massachusetts as well as the Chesapeake Bay area. The large title cartouche is surrounded by a fabulous scene of the colonists and Native Americans greeting each other.
