"Produced on a stereograhpic projection like more and more maps of the time, it is an amalgam of various sources. It incorporates a more correct west coast of South America and narrows still further the longitudinal width of New Spain at the Tropic of Cancer, making it just 10 degrees, much closer to reality. However, like all cartography before, it still retains an enlarged North American continent. . Particularly notable is the native Brazilian scene illustrating the method used to make a local beverage, derived from Hans Staden's voyage as recorded by de Bry. There are various galleons, kayaks and Indian canoes along with a pair of birds perched on the inset." (Burden I:150). The text on the verso is in French, p. 347, Ppppppp, matching the description of the fourth publication of this map (and the first French edition)., Size : 375x505 (mm), 14.76x19.88 (Inches), Hand Colored, 0 Old tear extending from right margin to central fold, expertly repaired and hardly visible; in very good condition, laid down on acid-free paper for long-term preservation.
