A map of the Americas divided into its main states. The obvious inaccuracies in the map reflect the failure of early explorers to accurately chart the northern coastlines of North America, with cartographers of the time having been further misled by publication of maps showing the supposed discoveries of the entirely fictitious Admiral de Fonte (The Lake de Fonte is shown on the map).
