Attractive pair of maps focusing on South America. The first map delineates the northern part of the continent from the Isthmus of Panama to the middle of Brazil and Bolivia. The second map picks up from just above the Tropic of Capricorn to Tierre de Fuego and the Falkland Islands. Both maps have excellent detail of towns and topography.


Condition: B

Nice impressions with a little bit of offsetting. Issued folding now pressed with binding trims in margins affecting platemarks, but well away from neatlines.

Estimate: $150 - $200
