This exquisite first-state map with original color dates to 1630 and was created by famous Dutch cartographer, atlas maker, and publisher Willem Blaeu. It shows the coast of Chile as it appeared during the period of Spanish colonial occupation, detailing topographic features such as the Andes Mountains. Orientation is such that North corresponds to the map's lefthand margin, and a cartouche with a numbered legend indicated various cities and sites of import.
