Description  One of the first maps to show North America only and to include the name "Canada." The name previously appeared on Paolo Forlani’s map of the world. One can read "La Nova Franza," "Canada pro.," "Terra Dellaborador," "Stadacone" (Quebec City), "Ochelaga" (Montreal), etc. on the map. This is the first appearance of other names, such as the Anian Strait (Bering Strait) between North America and Asia, on a printed map.
