Label:The cartographic information presented in this small map were derived from the important 1606 Mercator-Hondius (Virginiae Item et Floridae Americae Provinciarum nova Descriptio, 1606) map of the southeastern coast of North America. The first state of Duval's map was published in 1659, a testement to the longevity of the Mercator-Hondius map's influence. This copy, state 4, was published in Pierre Duval's "Le Monde ou la Géographie Universelle." Bermuda is included as an inset map suspended, banner-like, from a longitudinal marker.
