Map of Florida and Cuba. Spanish territories in Florida and Cuba. The labels are in Latin, as is the title: 'Floridae Americae provinciae'. The map was produced by French artist Jacques Le Moyne de Morgues (c.1533-1588) based on his travels in the region in 1564 with the French explorers Ribault and Laudonniere. Rivers, lakes, mountains and settlements are shown, including Port Royal and Fort Caroline. This map was part of Le Moyne's account of their travels 'Brevis narratio eorum quae in Florida Americae provincia Gallis acciderunt'. It was published in 1591 as part of a larger work by German engraver Theodore de Bry.
