This fine chart details the coast line of South America showing ports and rivers. The only interior feature is The Famous Mines of Potosi in Peru. This rare map is likely the work of John Harris, John Senex and Henry Wilson, whose names appear on the world map of the atlas, and who introduced the new projection used for the map.
