This map of Columbia and the Isthmus of Panama is meticulously engraved with good detail of towns and topography. The map extends to include Lake Maracaibo in Venezuela. It is based on the cartography of D'Anville and is decorated with a baroque cartouche.
A nice impression on watermarked paper, issued folding with very minor creasing in the blank margins and a tiny damp stain in the top left corner.
