A chart of Europe, oriented to the west, with the arms of the most important countries superimposed on their territories. The inset map at the upper left shows Spitsbergen, a Norwegian island in Svalbard; the inset at the bottom shows the Canary Islands. Colom subtly asserts Dutch maritime dominance by giving the ships Dutch flags.
