This map focuses on the Caribbean, Central America and northward to New England. The topography is indicated simply and includes an unusual Felis Lake west of Pennsylvania. The early English settlements of Boston, Cape Cod, James Towne, and Charles Towne are shown. A thing of interest is the name of the Rickohockans in current day northern Georgia. The Rickohockans were Indian tribe that was described by John Lederer that existed in the southeast west of the Appalachians. This map appeared in Moll's "Thesaurus Geographicus".
