Rather scarce map of North and South America depicting California as a long island with an indented northern coast.

The Pacific Northwest is labeled: Terra Borealis incognita detect. a Joh. de Gama.

Guadalcanal is wrongly placed near the west coast of South America.

An engraved vignette in the lower left depicts three Europeans presenting an open chest to a native.

Condition Description
