Attractive and detailed map of the central part of South America showing the missions as well as topography, rivers and towns. The map extends from Lake Titicaca to Sao Paulo, and to Chili and the mouth of the La Plata. The La Plata is mapped with much detail, but incorrectly with its source in a Laguna de Los Xareyes.
Delicately colored map with tape repairs on verso, and some foxing. Folds as issued.
