The most beautiful map of South America to appear in a Dutch atlas. The distinctive Mercator-Hondius engraving style is here found in full flower, especially in the large strapwork cartouche and the stippled seas filled with monsters and ships. At lower left is a view of the Incan capital city of Cusco.
