¤ This fine and scarce sea chart covers the central Atlantic and extends to include the Maritime Provinces, Antilles and the northwest coast of South America, east to the Azores, Cape Verde, Madeira and the Canary Islands. A pair of compass roses orient the map with north to the left, and rhumb lines cross the map.
"This map's coverage was originally devised by Theunis Jacobsz in c.1650; it is, however, derived from later derivatives. Goos appears to have drawn upon Hendrick Doncker of 1659 for his depiction of the North American coastline, but Joannes van Loon for the South American portion. Shortly after Goos altered the chart extensively, something that he virtually never did. These alterations drew upon the van Loon chart of 1661 with the exception of the St. Lawrence River. The coastlines of present day New jersey and Long Island are much improved. The Grand Banks and Newfoundland are also reconfigured. All of the Atlantic Islands are moved further east, and the Brazilian coastline is extended eastwards." (Burden)

¤ Two separate virtually identically sized inset maps on one sheet, each with a decorative scroll title cartouche. Culiacanae depicts the coastal and inland western region in North central Mexico, the present state of Sinaloa. Just off shore is a rather long, thin island which has been suggested, without much acceptance, if any, as the first or very early depiction of California as an island. The other inset shows much if not most of the West Indies and the Bahamas, one of the earliest maps to do so. - Van den Broecke, Ortelius Atlas maps, 14. Second state.
