The major map details the northern coastline of Russia (including Finland), the eastern coast of Asia to just below Nanking, and a bit of the coast of America called 'Anian'. Inset into the map are four small maps of the western part of America: "Nova Granada" showing the Mexican coast of the Gulf of California, "Anian Regnum", which includes 'Quivira', 'Tolm', and 'Zubgara' with the seven cities of Cibola, and another showing the entire coast with Japan laying a short distance off shore. All together a fascinating view of some cartographic theories. On a large sheet of fine paper.
