The New Island Behind Hispania by Sebastian Münster, 1540. This was the first separate map of the Americas. Note the dismembered human tied to a tree in South America near the text Canibali, and the city of Temistitan (or Tenochtitlan, now Mexico City). Ferdinand Magellan’s voyage is symbolized by a ship in the Pacific Ocean.
