Sketch of the earliest map of Florida coast by Fiske after Cantino

Sketch of the Florida coasts from the Cantino map 1502 (1902)

DESCRIPTION: Sketch of the Florida coast, a sketch of the earliest image of Florida known from an anonymous Portuguese manuscript portolan map of the world: The Cantino Planisphere. Martin Waldseemuller's 1507 map is derived from the Cantino Planisphere.

In 1501 Alberto Cantino commissioned a Portuguese official to make a map with all the latest discoveries known to the Portuguese. That large map incorporated discoveries made by several explorers in the first decade of the 16th century and revealed unpublished details of Portuguese trade routes.

This bookplate sketch of a portion of Cantino's map is from "The Discovery of America" by John Fiske, 1892.
