Description

Fine example, with wide margins of this handsome map of the Isthmus of Panama and northwestern South America including most of present day Columbia and part of Venezuela.
Terra Firma is Panama, Veragua is Costa Rica, and Popayan in the west and Nuevo Rey Node Granada in the east refers to the mountainous Columbia.
The map is significant both for illustrating these early historic areas in the New World and for the numerous settlements, rivers and mountains.
The map is based on the cartography of Hessel Gerritsz.
