  • "This work ... is ... interesting ... on account of the introduction of accents ... but it requires no little stretch of imagination to place it among the books relating to America, on the strength of a small fanciful map on page 18, which exhibits on the west a kind of promontory with the inscription: Terra incognita, and on the south: Monte del Purgatoria"--Harrisse. No. 260
