Notes First State. "This chart produced in a larger scale than usual, reflects the importance of its waters to Spain. It was through the 'Canaal van Bahama' that a large proportion of the gold and silver from the Americas passed" "The monoculture of the Florida peninsula matches, with the exception of five names at the southern tip. The most interesting feature is the reintroduction of a mountain range; this has not been seen on a map of the region since those of De Bry in the 1590's. After a brief period when the name Tegesta was applied, FLORIDA is used again." -Burden
