This map depicts the southeast from the southern part of Virginia to the northern part Florida. It is based on the Hondius 1606 map after the surveys of John White (England, 1590) and Jacques Le Moyne de Morgues (French, 1564-1565). English and French colonization are indicated by the Royal arms of the two nations in Virginia and Florida. This map appeared in "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum."
A map with the same title was published in 1641 by Joannes Jannson. The maps are regarded as identical, although there are small differences in the plates used.
The cartouche reads: "VIRGINIAE/ partis australis/ et FLORIDAE partis/ orientalis, interjacentiumq 3 regionum/ NOVA DESCRIPTIO."
The scale reads: "Milliaria Germanica communia"
