This is a very nice map of South America in the excellent Tallis tradition. It details rivers, lakes, towns and villages, etc. The continent is surrounded by eight vignettes -- gold mining in Brazil, a Brazilian rope bridge, condors and llamas of Peru, natives of Chili, Valparaiso, figures descending the Cordilleras, natives transporting a barrel, and a view of Rio de Janeiro.  John Rapkin drew and engraved the map.
