Attractive small map of Mexico and the whole coastline of the Gulf of Mexico. The map appears to be based in part on Cornelis de Jode's Americae Pars Borealis (1593). Mexico City is shown prominently, with a smoking volcano just to the south. A number of other cities are labeled in Mexico, while only rivers and capes are noted in the US. The Rio Grande River is identified as R. Escondido. Adorned with a strapwork title cartouche.

This map comes from the first french edition of Langene's Caert Thresor the Atlas is titled 'Thresor de Chartes, contenant les Tableaux de Tous les Pays du Monde'. French text.
