Description

Extremely rare early map of the Southern part of South America, published by F.W. Spehr.

The map was intended to be a part of Spehr's Geographischer Universal-Atlas. This work was started between 1822 and 1825, but the atlas was never completed, with only 36 of the 90 planned maps actually printed.

Remarkably, this is the second state of the map, which was first dated 1825. http://www.atlassen.info/atlassen/spehr/speua01/picslarge/speua1825k087.jpg

We locate no other examples of the map, other than the present example, which was acquired in 2017 from Norbert Haas.
