Three hand-colored engraved maps on one sheet, 340 x 470 mm. Crease down center fold, lightly browned. Matted and framed.

FIRST PRINTED MAP OF FLORIDA, based on the voyage of Hernando de Soto. The Spanish were always protective of their information and Ortelius was likely supplied this information from a Spanish spy. The Guastecan map extends the region down the Gulf coast of Mexico, and the map of Peru contains a region described as "Aurea Regio" or Kingdom of Gold, a likely reference to El Dorado. Burden Mapping of North America 57.
