    Superb map of the Jesuit province of Paraguay and the surrounding regions. Between 1609 and 1780, the Roman Catholic Society of Jesus (the Jesuits) established an autonomous Christian Indian state on the territory of present-day Paraguay, Uruguay, and parts of Argentina and Brazil. The locations of cities, missions and villages (Mission a Barbaris) are included on the beautifully engraved map. The major missionary trails are also depicted. The map is dedicated to Michelangelo Tamburino, Superior General of the Society of Jesus from 1706 to 1730.

Condition Description: A strong impression on watermarked paper with original color in the map and later color in the cartouches. There is some extraneous creasing along the centerfold at far right and a few archivally repaired tears confined to the blank margins.
