This intricately engraved map of northern South America extends as far south as northern Peru and Brazil, although there is little detail south of the Amazon River. Numerous place names, rivers, lakes, tribes, and more are located, and the topographical detail is excellent. There are six distance scales at bottom right. Engraved by Tardieu and printed by Kaeppelin and Co.
A crisp impression on a clean sheet with original outline color. There is faint toning along the centerfold.
