  <mods:abstract>Although in his later publications Waldseemüller apparently retracted his depiction of a separate continent named America, other publishers quickly accepted his initial concept and imitated the shapes and nomenclature shown on the 1507 Waldseemüller map. An example of the early acceptance and adoption of Waldseemüller's proposed new continent named America is found on the wood cut printed world map created by Apianus that appeared in Caius Julius Solinus's Polyhistor published in 1520. Apianus' map is obviously a much reduced version of the 1507 map, but it retains the same cordiform (heart shaped) projection and the same narrow, elongated shape of the new continent. However, the landmasses in this map are much more boldly labeled "America." The clear and straightforward use of the term "America" by Apianus, a highly regarded mathematician and cartographer, contributed to the place name's eventual immortality.</mods:abstract>
