An attractive example of this important engraving comprising three separate maps; of Peru, of Florida and of the Mexican Gulf coast. The plate details areas of significant Spanish influence in the New World from original Spanish sources. In this latter respect the maps are very unusual as the Spanish were notoriously protective of their cartographic information. The map of Peru is attributed to one Didacus Mendezius, of whom nothing is known. However, that of Florida bears the line "Auctore Hieron. Chiaves". Geronimo de Chaves was Cosmographer Royal to Philip II of Spain and compiled this map from the reports of De Soto's expedition c.1540. This is the first printed map to focus on the southern States region extending, in present-day terms, from the Carolinas, through Florida and beyond the Texas/Mexico coastline. The map appeared in Abraham Ortelius' "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum", the first "modern" atlas". This example, with minor marginal repairs, is otherwise in generally good condition.
