Interesting manuscript map of part of the central highlands of Peru, from Jauja in the north to Huancayo and Chupaca in the south.

The map covers a little more than 50 miles north-to-south and east-to-west.

Many smaller villages and hamlets are noted, with an internal symbolic system of small triangles, circles, and crosses to denote size and other aspects of the communities - unfortunately, there is no key to decode these symbols.

Topography is rendered with hachuring.

Dating is based on orthography.

An intriguing map worthy of further study.
