This very detailed map depicts northeastern South America (present-day Brazil, British Guyana, French Guyana & Surinam) with countries named and provinces in contrasting colors. Topographical features are shown with numerous mountains, cities, towns, and waterways identified. Indian Tribes are located throughout the map.
The insets depict the ''ENVIRONS OF RIO JANEIRO'' and ''PARAGUAY''. A very attractive view of northeastern South America as it was known in the mid-19th century.
