A facsimile of the original edition published by the Knickerbocker Press, New York, 1911 (Besterman 1153). This scarce catalogue, which includes an introductory essay and bibliography, describes thirty-two portolan charts belonging to the Hispanic Society of America, from circa 1425 to 1650, with fifteen black-and-white reproductions. The original is quite scarce, and it is no longer in print in any edition.
