Striking map of all South America, with the southern portion inclined too far to the west, and good detail and interesting notations concerning recent explorations of the interior. The tracks of several voyages are shown in the Pacific where the Solomon Islands are also delineated. Large, fully colored, decorative cartouche with natives and an incongruous elephant.
Tissue repair of a short fold separation at bottom and a couple of edge tears, else near fine.
