Derived from the Hondius-Blaeu version of John Smith’s map. Oriented to the West. Tooley’s Derivative 8, State 1: Cartouche at upper left with no imprint. “Notarum Explicato” at upper right with engraved goat, llama, and Native American.

Jester watermarks have appeared on the paper used for the Dutch and High German editions, and a cockatrice watermark on Ogilby’s English edition.
