Two decorative and finely engraved maps, both with beautifully rendered (uncolored) insets and borders. The map of Central America extends just into Costa Rica with three vignettes: Volcano of Isalco, Great Square of the Antiqua, Guatemala, and Belize. The Panama map features vignettes of The Fort at Chagres, and Gold Seekers on their way over the Cordilleras. It extends from Carthagena north to Nicaragua and part of Honduras. Size varies slightly.
Both with good margins and original color.
