A. van Krevelt engraved this matched pair of maps of Peru. The first covers the region between Pisco, Peru and Tocopilla, Chili, and inland to present-day Bolivia. La Paz, Trinidad, and Santa Cruz are identified, as well as nice detail of smaller towns, river systems, mountains and Lake Titicaca. The second covers the northern two-thirds of present-day Peru. It includes Lima, Cusco, Abancay, Huamanga, Huamuco, Trujillo, Yurimanguas, Naranjos, and Moyobamba among its many cities and towns. The region beyond the River Paucartambo is labeled Pays entierement Inconnus (entirely unknown countries).
Some minor stains in blank margins, not affecting the maps.
