Lovely 18th century map of Columbia and the Isthmus of Panama with a bit of Costa Rica. The map is meticulously engraved with good detail of towns and topography, naming Cartagena, Lake Maracaibo, Portobelo and more. The map is decorated with a baroque cartouche.
Right margin close with binding trim and a short tear just to neatline, not affecting map.
