Lovely small map that illustrates the region from the Yucatan to the Gulf of Panama. It is nicely detailed, although much of the topography is still incorrect. Lago de Nicaragua has an east-west orientation. It was reduced from Sanson's folio map of 1662 and retains the same level of detail.
Toned on centerfold with a chip in the bottom margin.
