Summary

Relief shown pictorially.
Probably the second state of the map. Differs from the first state in the reworking of Tierra del Fuego to include the Straits of Magellan. Presents Staten Island, west of Tierra del Fuego, as an island, presumably based on the observations of Hendrik Brouwer in 1643. Differs from the state owned by the Harry Ransom Center by the presence of a blank cartouche off the west coast of Africa in the center of the map.
Includes text and illustrations.
Wall map assembled from 10 engraved folio sheets.
Available also through the Library of Congress Web site as a raster image.
