This handsome map covers the central portion of South America's western coastal region. It spans from above the Equator to below the Tropic of Capricorn, features good coastal detail, and names several native peoples. The map is adorned with a decorative cartouche and four distance scales.
A nice impression on watermarked paper with a few tiny mildew spots along the centerfold at far right, faint offsetting, and some minor creasing.
