First state. Although a map of South America it does include much of what is now the southern United States. There are two elaborate, strap-work cartouches with the one at lower right surmounted by a finely rendered mapmaker’s compass. Above left and right respectively are the royal arms of Spain and France.
From the third part of his "Grand Voyages" including the accounts of the voyages of Johann van Staden and Jean de Léry, during the 1540s and 1550s.
The map is drawn from de Bry's own map of Florida after Jacques le Moyne, published in the previous year. There is no easily discernible source for the South American cartography. He includes still a form of protrusion to the south-west coastline of the continent, a feature which Ortelius had dropped in 1587. Attractively engraved, this rare map's outline was used again by de Bry for that of the West Indies in 1594. (Burden)
