Bibliographic information

State 1 See general notes.
State 2 [1745], Mare Iesso rather than Mare de Iesso as in State 1. Much of the lettering in the oceans is in bold. Issued in: Atlas portatilis, oder compendieuse Vorstellung der gantzen Welt ... [Map 31]. -- Nuernberg, 1745. (Note: Map 1 in this atlas shows California as a peninsula.)
State 3 Mare Iesso rather than Mare de Iesso. "II Th. page 28." (top right), "G. Haupt Sc. a. v." (bottom right). Regio Incognito rather than Incognita.
State 4 May be copied from map entitled "AMERICA", [172-?] of unknown origin. Cartouche differs, Neu Amsterdam and Pto. de Carinda are missing, and it has P[?] de S. Barbara. Otherwise the cartography is very similar.
