A nice copper engraved map of the Americas with good detail throughout. The colonial powers of Britain, France and Spain divide North America roughly in thirds. Above C. Blank in California a short coastline juts westward and there is nothing above that. South America is well mapped with the interior labeled 't Land der Amazonen. The map includes part of Europe and Africa as well.
