Description

Rare map of the southern part of Mexico and Guatemala, published in Bologna.

The map is intended to illustrate the Augustinian Missionary work and influence in Southern Mexico and Central America.

The map appeared in a rare Augustian work entitled Orbis Augustinianus sive Conventuum Ordinis Eremitarum Sanctii Augustini Chorographica and Topographica Descriptio" published about 1659.   

The map is credited to Augustin Lubin. Father Augustin Lubin was an Augustinian humanist and theologian originally from Paris.  He wrote a number of important historical and geographical works that earned him the title of geographer of the King.
