Footnotes

  • One of the earliest printed maps of the continent of the Americas, based on the travels of the explorers Ayllon (who attempted an unsuccessful colonisation on the south east coast), Gomes (who explored New England) and Fagundes. The map, also notable for the profusion of place names along the coasts, was first published in Lopez de Gómara's La istoria de las Indias, 1554, and the present example is from one of the three issue of Levinus Apollonius's De Peruviae regionis, all of which saw the title amended to include the mention of Peru.
