¤ The Spanish empire in the New World, made up of 3 maps on one sheet: the largest showing central and South America (Peru), the second showing Florida and the southeast and the third, Guastecan (Huasteca), a northeastern province of Mexico.
In the upper right corner a map of Florida. The Chaves map of Florida is a prime example of an explorer's map since it records the recent discoveries of Cabeza de Vaca, De Soto, and Moscoso. The map revealed little information on the interior of North America, but the details presented have been definitely linked with known features. The village of "Aijx" undoubtedly became known to the Spaniards as Ais, and the Mississippi, though distorted, appeared as the " S.Spiritu", the name given to the river by early Spanish explorers. Tascalisa lies on the map as closely as possible to where today's Tuscaloosa, Alabama is. The Chaves map published by Ortelius was, therefore, one of the earliest printed maps of the territory based on actual observations. -Martin & Martin; Maps of Texas and the Southwest. The first printed map of the Florida region. Also on the same sheet are maps of eastern Mexico and of Peru, thus completing the picture of Spain's American possessions. - Cumming, Southeast, p.12,#5; Van den Broecke, Ortelius atlas maps, 15; Burden, North America, 57.

¤ Carte du continent américain ornée de 4 médaillons en angles comprenant le titre, Cuba, Haïti et le golfe du Mexique avec le Yucatan. Le tracé général de la carte est dressé d'après la mappemonde murale de Rumold Mercator, de 1587.
- This map was created by Michael Mercator, grandson of the great Gerard Mercator. It is the only map attributed to him. The map first appeared in 1595, one year after the great cartographer’s death in the atlas published by his son Rumold. The general outline of the map was taken from Rumold Mercator’s world map of 1587.
Some of these unique views were incorporated – such as the mystical islands of the North Atlantic (St. Brendan), the bulge on the west coast of South America, and the inland lake of fresh water in Canada. Small rounded inset maps contain the title, Cuba, Hispaniola and the Gulf of Mexico.
By 1606, the copperplate had been sold to Jodocus Hondius, who continued to publish the map for the next 33 years. This is an early Latin text example published by J. Hondius. Goss, North America, no.19: Burden, America 87.
