ÒDescripci¿n del Districto Del Audiencia Del HispaniolaÓ by Antonio de Herrera y Tordesillas, Madrid, 1601. Despite its relatively simple appearance, this map is rare in that it is a wholly Spanish image of the early Caribbean American colonies. It is quite detailed and provides many, many place names. This is how the Spanish Caribbean was understood when many of the ships we are researching sailed.
