This copper engraved map of the Americas shows good detail throughout. It depicts the colonial powers of Britain, France and Spain divided into roughly thirds in North America. The northwest portion of North America above C. Blank is completely blank. South America is well mapped with the interior labeled 't Land der Amazonen. The map also includes the western portion of Europe and Africa.
A strong impression on watermarked paper with wide, original margins. There is a faint damp stain along the bottom edge of the sheet, far from map image.
