Arnoldus Montanus drew upon the Willem Blaeu map of c.1638 for his map of this region. Already by this date it had been colonised by the English and named Carolina, although no reference is made to it here. It is more decorative than the Blaeu in that it bears two large decorative cartouches depicting native scenes.
