Large folio map of the continent with Sanson's characteristic attention to detail. The relatively unknown Amazon region is left without speculation. The mythical Lac de Parime still appears with the legendary Manoa del Dora (city of gold) on its western shore; although the lake is diminished in size from earlier depictions. There is considerable detail of towns and cities and the capitaineries are delineated in Brazil. Decorated with a strapwork title cartouche. Engraved by A. Peyrounin.
