On october 15, 1722, Juan de Acuña, marqués de Casafuerte arrived in Mexico
as thirty-seventh viceroy of New Spain. He is said to have been one of the
best of all the representatives of royalty, being remembered in the history of
the country as the 'Great Governor.' He died in 1734 at the age of seventy-
seven. For further information consult H. H. Bancroft's Mexico, v. 3, pp.
349-351.

For a notice of Pedro Rivera Villalon consult José Mariano Beristain de Souza's
Biblioteca hispano-americana septentrional... Mexico, 1821, p. 37.

A description of this work is given, with the following note, in José Toribio
Medina's La imprenta en Guatemala (1660-1821) Santiago de Chile, 1910,
p. 85:

"Rivera salió de México el 21 de Noviembre de 1724 y sólo vino á regresar el 29 de Junio de 1728, habiendo andado en todo 3,082 leguas. En el 'Diario' describe día por día cuanto vió en el viaje, situación geográfica de los lugares, costumbres de los habitantes, producciones del suelo, etc."

The Library of Congress has a copy of Rivera's work entitled: Diario y derrotero de lo caminado, visto, y obcervado en el discurso de la visita general de precidios, situados en las provincias ynternas d Nueva España, que de orden de Su Magestad executo D. Pedro de Rivera. . . Guathemala, S. de Arebalo, 1736.

In the first page of this Diario, Rivera says:

"Como para el conocimiento de los Reynos y Provincias lo demuestran en vn Plano los Geographos: describo yo en este Mapa el estado de las Provincias, que andube, y reconocicon la experiencia practica, para que ala primera vista, quede el menos inteligente con el conocimiento de aquellos pasages, y de lo qen ellos se incluye, las distacias q median entre vnas y otras Provincias, con las Latitudes, y Lōgitudes, en q cada vna se halla, para la inteligencia de todas las partes q forman aquel compuesto, y de lo prolixo de mi peregrinacion, ala que me destinô la obediencia."

From this paragraph it seems that a map should accompany this work, but no map appears in any of the copies which are mentioned. Frequent references are made throughout the text to Francisco Alvarez Barreiro, most of them showing that he was directed to make certain maps and plans of the various provinces inspected.

In Antonio Bonilla's Brief compendium of the history of Texas, published in the Quarterly of the Texas state historical association for july 1904, the Revista of Rivera is given, pp. 37-40.

LC 323

NOTE. This map is made up of two of the Ottens maps-Cuba as the upper half, and the Isthmus of Panama as the lower. They were evidently intended to be so joined as they fit exactly, including the route track of the galleons which runs through both.

A copy of this map containing the first title is in the collection of the Library of Congress, dated 1745?

The second title belongs to a map described in R. & J. Ottens' Atlas minor, described in title 616 of Phillips' List of Geographical Atlases. The reason for this date is given in the note.

The inset of St. Augustine in the first map is based upon the inset in the map by Moll, of the West Indies about 1715.

Nederlanden. Haarlem, 1868, v. 13, pp. 241–242; also P. A. Tiele's Nederlandsche

NOTE. This map is translated into latin from Delisle's map published in 1722 which is a revised edition of his 1703 map entitled: "Carte du Mexique et de la Floride." Consult title 313 for this original french edition.

This latin impression by Seutter was taken from Homann's Grosser atlas, 1737, described in Phillips' List of Geographical Atlases, title 586, and is also found in other editions of his atlas. It is entitled "Regni Mexicani seu Novæ Hispaniæ. . ." It contains in place of the inset of harbors a sketch of traders bartering with indians. The Pieter Schenk impression which is earlier than the Homann, is entitled "Tabula Mexicae et Floridae." It differs in the omission of the engraving.

An exact reproduction of this map in all its points has the name of Lotter in
place of Seutter. In the inset to Seutter's impression, entitled "Bahia Portus
Belli", is the following: "Admiralis Vernon Bachiam intrans d. 21 Novembr.
1739."
This map is no. 190 in the "Verlagsübersicht bis 1760," reprinted in
Sandler's notice of Seutter.

Title 316 is a duplicate description of this map.

For notices of the life and works of Seutter consult title 317.
