DETAILS

A rare miniature map of Mexico, including Florida. Title cartouche on the lower left corner.

First published in 1598 in his Caert-Thresoor, the plates were executed by the most famous engravers in Amsterdam, including Petrus Kaerius and Jodocus Hondius I. The atlas set a new standard for minor atlases. The small maps is extremely well engraved.
