Lovely 18th century map of the Americas. Considerable detail even in the interiors. There is no coastline above the peninsula California. Very large, uncolored, cartouche with two erupting volcanoes, native Americans, birds and what appears to be a pot of gold. Original full color in the Americas, with outline color in the parts of Europe and Africa shown. Nice crisp impression in (uncolored) cartouche.


Condition: A

Estimate: $1,100 - $1,200
