|Few books were as influential in the history of Europe's conceptualization of the New World as Waldseemüller's small quarto volume, published in a village in Lorraine. The volume comprises three related works, the longest of which is the voyages of Amerigo Vespucci. Waldseemüller also published a world map incorporating Spanish and Portuguese discoveries, which he had printed in large sheets and sold separately.|
