Spanish North America. 1600 map of the southern regions of North America, including California, Mexico and Florida. The labels and text are in Latin. At the time, this area was claimed by the Spanish (Castilian crown and coat-of-arms below title cartouche), as shown by names such as Nova Hispania and Nova Galicia (both now in Mexico), and Nova Granada (New Mexico). Details include rivers, cities, mountains, coastlines, sea monsters, sailing ships, a compass rose, and rhumb lines. This map was produced by the London cartographer Gabriel Tatton (named at top centre) and the English engraver Benjamin Wright (named at upper right).
