Source Narrative and critical history of America, Volume 2
Author Justin Winsor

The 1511 map, here given in fac-simile after another fac-simile in the Carter-Brown Catalogue, has been several times reproduced,--in Stevens's Notes, pl. 4; J. H. Lefroy's Memorials of the Bermudas, London, 1877; H. A. Schumacher's Petrus Martyr, New York, 1879; and erroneously in H. H. Bancroft's Central America, i. 127. Cf. also Harrisse, Bibl. Amer. Vet., no. 66; Additios, p. viii and no. 41; Notes on Columbus, p. 9; and his Les Cortereal, p. 113. Copies of the book are in the Carter-Brown, Lenox, Daly, and Barlow libraries. A copy (no. 1605 *) was sold in the Murphy sale. Quaritch has priced a perfect copy at £100. The map gives the earliest knowledge which we have of the Bermudas.
