This attractive and detailed map of America appeared in the reissue of "Atlas Minor" in 1630. This was one of the most successful atlas productions of the 1600s. The "Atlas Minor" offered by Amsterdam publisher Cornelis Claesz first appeared in 1607 in Latin text and subsequently in some six further editions before 1620, in French and German translations. Finely engraved by Abraham Goos, this is an interesting depiction of the New World with New America separated from the mainland at 'Quivira'.
