This early plan of Buenos Aires is laid out in blocks with unnamed streets. A few important buildings are identified and the fort is prominently shown on the coast with its ramparts well delineated. Embellished with large compass in the bay and a rococo-style title cartouche that incorporates a distance scale.
Minor creases, else fine with a sharp impression and wide original margins.
