First edition of this interesting map of South America, published in London by Wilkinson.
The map is colored to differentiate the primary colonial powers (Spain in yellow, Portugal in red, other colonies in green), with Patagonia differentiated from the others. Still relatively little known about the interior regions, on the eve of South America's century of Revolution.
Robert Wilkinson was active in London as a cartographic publisher from 1785 to 1825. He produced a number of nice works, including a General Atlas and a re-issuance of Bowen & Kitchen's English Atlas, along with excellent large format separate maps.
