Historical Maps of the Americas

The history of the Americas has been well documented through maps since the first appearance of America (labeled Terra Incgognita) in Martin Waldseemuller’s Strasbourg edition of the Ptolemy Atlas in 1513. Our extensive collection of historical maps includes maps that illustrate the earliest explorations, and any other maps that focus on the 'Americas' region.

We are constantly working to expand our collection of historic maps. Please revisit often to see what’s new.
