A finely engraved and detailed chart of the coasts of South America and Africa below the equator. Extending to the Pacific and Indian Ocean coasts good detail is shown with soundings and rhumb lines across the chart. The price of "Trois Francs" indicates the chart was available separately although this example has, at some time been bound within an atlas format, hence its good state of preservation.
