This attractive Italian map of the Americas is engraved with fine topographical detail and filled with place names. In North America, Alaska is still a bit misshapen with the interior unexplored. The United States' northern boundary extends into present-day British Columbia reflecting American interests in the region. In the Great Basin, a speculative S. Filippo River extends from Lake Timpanogos to the Pacific Ocean. The islands in both the Atlantic and Pacific are well delineated, and the course of the Amazon River dominates northern South America.
