This finely engraved map features three beautifully rendered vignettes: Volcano of Isalco, Great Square of the Antiqua, Guatemala, and Belize. The map extends just into Costa Rica and includes the proposed route for a rail and canal system between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.
Nice impression and original outline color. Binding trim affecting decorative title at top, as is often the case with maps from this atlas.
