Finely engraved map of South America, from Chiquet's scarce Le Nouveau et Curieux…

The map includes a striking cartouche and annotations and a vignette showing a naval battle between native and European sailing vessels, albeit of a decidedly Asian style.

The map is filled with details on the inland rivers, towns, lakes, etc. A note at the bottom describes Magellan's discovery of the Straits of Magellan, during his circumnavigation in 1520 aboard the Victoria.
