This handsome map of the northern section of South America is based on D'Anville's important 3-sheet map of the continent. It covers the continent north of the equator and provides a particularly detailed view of the rivers. Large regions are completely blank with notations regarding the various Indian tribes. This edition was issued by Remondini.
A nice impression with contemporary outline color in the map and later color in the cartouche, on paper with a large "R" watermark. There is light soiling, a few minor creases, and faint damp stains in blank margins, just entering map less than 1" at bottom left.
