Caption

Early map of the world, showing America. Produced in 1507 by the German cartographer Martin Waldseemuller, this is the first known document to use the name America to refer to the New World. Waldseemuller proposed the name in honour of the supposed discoverer of the continent, Amerigo Vespucci. Out of the 1000 copies of the map issued, only one remains. It is stored in the Library of Congress, Washington DC, USA.
