This introduces the account of Girolamo Benzoni's "La Historia del Mondo Nuovo", originally published in 1565. In particular, it deals with the voyages of Columbus whose three ships are shown below, sailing to America in 1492. The Indians he encountered, along with the flora of the New World, decoratively surround the title panel. A devil with a face in his stomach represents the idols worshiped by the Peoples encountered there.
