Rare Swedish Language Map of Peru

Fascinating map intended to promote the interests of Peru, published in Southampton.

Published in a number of languages, including English and Swedish, the map devised by Eduardo Higginson, Peru’s Consul General in Southampton, England, published on the orders of the country’s foreign minister, Eugenio Larrabure y Unánue, as a public relations item showcasing Peru’s economic and natural features and its sweeping boundary claims with respect to its disputed frontiers with Ecuador, Brazil and Bolivia.

The map was designed by Lima mapmaker Rafael E. Baluarte and published in England by George Philip & Son; the verso featuring a lengthy textual description of Peru; the present example being a German edition of a work that was issued in four languages.
