This edition owes its importance to the heart-shaped map of the world on which for the first
time in any edition of Ptolemy, North America is shown, along with the names of regalis domus and
terra laboratorus, the former a fragmentary coastline, the latter a large island. Below these are terra cuba, ispaniar insu, and part of South America with the
inscription, TERRA SANCTAE CRUCIS.
