Handsome map of the western part of the continent and the full course of the Amazon. The spurious Lac, ou Mer de Parime is prominent as is the location of the mythical city Manoa el Dorado (City of Gold). Fully engraved to show topography, cities and villages. Attractive strapwork title cartouche.
A fine impression on a crisp sheet.
