(N & S America) Superb Early 17th Century Continental Map of South America. "America Pars Meridionalis", by Jan Jansson, Amsterdam, ca. 1640. Printed area 18" high x 21 1/2" wide plus margins, in original outline color with a fully colored cartouche. From the north, including parts of Central America and the Isthmus of Panama to the Straits of Magellan and Cape Horn in the south. Interior details show a hunting scene, dwellings, village life, wild animals and in both oceans, sailing ships, native boats and sea monsters. The mouth of the Rio de la Plata is huge with myriad large islands upstream and a very sizeable lake is seen to the northeast. The large cartouche portrays six adult natives and one child along with flora and fauna. Only slight aging of the paper at the edges, otherwise this rare and important map is in excellent condition.
Estimated Value $1,000 - 1,250.
