This large map covers the northern half of South America centered on the Valley of the Amazon. It delineates the river and its tributaries in particularly fine detail and is filled with annotations and place names. The title is enclosed in a very large allegorical cartouche with soldiers, a personified sun burst, and a pot of coins.
Watermarked paper with minor printer's ink residue and a few soft creases.
