Blaeu maps are renowned for the consummate care and attention apparent in every stage of production - using only the best paper with finely engraved plates and a high standard of printing.

This map shows the Gulf of Mexico including the Caribbean basin extending north to Virginia and the Chesapeake and south to the northern coast of South America. It was first published in 1635 in simultaneously issued Latin, French, and Dutch editions of Ortelius’ Theatrum Orbis Terrarum.
