Summary

Description

Map of the Spanish province of "La Florida," which included most of the southeastern United States. The map was drawn by Spanish royal cartographer Geronimo Chiaves, and was probably based on accounts by members of the Hernando De Soto expedition (1539-1543). The map was originally published in Abraham Ortelius' Theatrum Orbis Terrarum in 1584.
