A fascinating and rarely seen map compiled by Trelawney Saunders to illustrate C.R. Markham's work delivered to the R.G.S "On The Geographical Positions Of The Tribes Which Formed The Empire Of The Yncas." Four pages of text describe the map's sources and the inadequacy of previous work ... "One of the objects of the present map has been to delineate the Peruvian Andes in a graphic manner, consistently with the best authorities relating to the bases, summits, slopes, plateaus, and other prominent features of the mountains. At the same time, the special purpose of the map - the distribution of the ancient tribes - has had to be kept in view, to the exclusion of names and details which were not required by that speciality. ... The map is, it is believed, the first contribution to the historical cartography of the Peruvian Andes." The map's title uses the original Inca name for their empire Ttahuantin-Suyu. 21 routes of Inca conquerors are delineated as are the routes of Clements Markham, himself. Accompanied by text the map remains folded as originally published.
