Rare decorative map of South America, published jointly by Maggi in Torino and Stucchi in Milan.
The map was issued during a turbulent time in the history of South America, toward the end of the period when Spain was losing its colonial empire.
The portrait of Vespucci is a marvelous decorative touch.
The map is apparently unrecorded. This is the first time we have ever seen the map for sale.
