This map was created by Michael Mercator, grandson of the great Gerard Mercator. It is the only map attributed to him. The map first appeared in 1595, one year after the great cartographer’s death in the atlas published by his son Rumold. The general outline of the map was taken from Rumold Mercator’s world map of 1587.
Some of these unique views were incorporated – such as the mystical islands of the North Atlantic (St. Brendan), the bulge on the west coast of South America, and the inland lake of fresh water in Canada. Small rounded inset maps contain the title, Cuba, Hispaniola and the Gulf of Mexico.
By 1606, the copperplate had been sold to Jodocus Hondius, who continued to publish the map for the next 33 years. This is an early Latin text example published by J. Hondius.
Reference: Burden, America 88.
