The source of this map is thought to be the 1631 map by Hondius with the same title, although this map was published before Hondius's map.This work was first published in German by Theodor de Bry as (pt 1) Continuatio Americae, Frankfurt a. M., 1627, and (pt 2) Vierzehender Theil Amerikanischer Historien, Hanau, 1630. Here Merian united the two parts and had them translated into Latin. Together the work includes 15 sections.
