BRUÉ, A. H. Carte physique et politique de l'Amerique Méridionale. Paris, J. Goujon and J. Andriveau, 1829.
Engraved map with original outline colouring, measuring 87 by 57 cm (printed surface); dissected into 21 segments and linen-backed; engraved map dealer's label (Goujon) and presentation label to Manchester Geographical Society of 1905 on verso; evenly a little toned, a few linen folds a bit weakened.
This is a rather large map of the subcontinent, produced after the independence from most European colonial masters had been achieved. The mapmakers credit Humboldt, who had supported Bolivar, for mapping large chunks of remote areas in Amazonia and on the Pacific. The new borders are marked, as well as the old European possessions are retained in colour. Issued first in 1821, this is the updated and partly re-engraved version.
