A nice map of Peru showing the coast from the Baye de Buenaventura that extends south to the border with Chile. There is excellent detail along the coastline, and many rivers are identified inland. A decorative title cartouche adorns the map. Engraved by Benard.
A crisp impression issued folding on a bright sheet of watermarked paper with faint scattered foxing along the folds, minor offsetting, and a binding trim in the left blank margin.
