This small map is filled with place names, political boundaries, and river systems. The mythical L. de Xarayes appears in northern Paraguay. This map appeared in Gerrit Brender a Brandis' Nieuwe Natuur-Geschieden Handelkundige Zak-En Reis-Atlas, which was published by Nicholaes Theodorus Gravius. The atlas included many maps engraved by Jacob Keizer and published in pocket atlases by Jan de Lat, some of which were updated with new geographical information and with Gravius' imprint replacing that of Keizer and De Lat.
A dark impression with contemporary outline color, issued folding on a bright sheet with minor foxing along the edges.
