Attractive map of the Southern portion of Baja California and contiguous Mexico, based in part on Scherer's correspondence with Fra. Eusebio Kino, the Jesuit Missionary credited with ending the California as an Island myth.

The map is widely regarded as the first detailed mapping of any portion of the interior of the Baja, showing missions, settlements, mountains, rivers, etc.

Large decorative cartouche, large compass rose, sea monsters and sailing ships embellish this map.
