Abstract:

"Juan de la Cosa made several maps, of which the only survivor is a map of the world signed in his name with the date 1500, making it the oldest known European cartographic representation of the New World. One point of special interest is that Cuba is drawn as an island, despite Columbus? belief that it was part of the Asian mainland. Also noteworthy is that North America is shown as a solid landmass extending far into the North Atlantic, while most earlier maps showed it consisting of separate islands"--Wikipedia.
