Original copper engraving, hand colored in outline and wash. The fine antique hand colored map published by the Dutch cartographer Joan Blaeu depicts the region of Rio de la Plata in South America. In the upper right side this old map is beautiful ornated with a title cartouche and a mileage scale. In its centre a large compass rose was used to decorate this map of the Rio de la Plata region. In the Atlantic Ocean we find a fine engraved scene of a seamonster.
