A sailing ship and monster in the ocean embellish this remarkable little plan of the southern tip of Argentina. The title is held aloft in a ribbon-style cartouche.
Crisp, dark impression with lovely coloring on hand laid paper with wide margins. A few worm holes at lower left corner, well away from map, which is fine.
