This miniature map of the hemisphere delineates the major divisions on the southern continent with dotted lines. A small cartouche covers the unknown northwestern part of North America with a note concerning the discoveries of Admiral de Fuentes. Many interesting place names and rivers are noted.
Very nice later color and a bright impression on a sheet with original margins. Issued folding, now pressed with some folds creased. The binding trim has been replaced, not affecting image.
