This attractive, small map shows the tip of South America with Tierra del Feugo. It illustrates the Strait of Magellan, Le Maire Strait and the mythical Destroit de Browers. The map was engraved by A. d'Winter for a Dutch edition of Sanson's pocket atlas.
There is a tiny printer's ink smudge in the blank margin, still fine.
