This is a later edition by Friedrich Canzler covering the region from the southeast coast of the United States to northern South America. The coastlines are filled with place names, and a key at bottom identifies the possessions of the Spanish, French, English, Dutch, Germans and Swedes. An inset at bottom details the coast of Guiana.
Watermarked paper with a professionally repaired centerfold separation at top, a crease at bottom left, and some minor soiling primarily in the blank margins.
