This large, fine, beautifully hand coloured original antique map of South America was engraved by Gustav Conrad Lotter in 1772 - dated at the foot of the map - and published by Tobias Conrad Lotter.

The map illustrates the exploration routes of Magellan (1520), Drake (1577), le Maire & Schouten (1616), and Sarmineto (1570) and others. The map contains interesting river systems and other speculative information about the unexplored interior of the Continent. (Ref: Tooley, M&B)
