    This finely engraved map of central Mexico was designed to illustrate the expedition of Hernan Cortes (here called Ferdinand Cortes), a Spanish Conquistador who conquered Mexico circa 1520 and caused the fall of the Aztec Empire. The map depicts Guadalajara and Mexico City both situated on large lakes. The title cartouche includes a scene of natives bringing treasures to Cortes. This map was published in van der Aa's compilation of early voyages of exploration.

Condition Description: Excellent impression and color with light toning. The top margin has been extended to accommodate framing.
