An attractive, small map featuring good detail of central Panama many years before the creation of the Canal. Numerous place names including Panama, Portobelo, Chagres, etc. Adorned with a delicate title cartouche. This map only appeared in Bellin's Petit Atlas Maritime, and is therefore much less common than his other maps of Panama.
