Cartobibliographic notes :
The maps in this manuscript (a summary of a larger work by the author, a prominent sixteenth-century Spanish cartographer) of the various colonial Spanish tribunals were copied and expanded by Antonio de Herrera y Tordesillas in his Historia general, Madrid, 1601. This manuscript postdates a copy in the Biblioteca national in Madrid (which was made after 1570), but predates the publication of Herrera's book.Image title taken from the verso of the map.
