recent arrival
An attractive example of this uncommon plan of Cusco, the Incan capital, albeit depicted in a very westernized style. One of the earliest plans of the town, it appeared in Giovanni Ramusio's extensive set of travel accounts and most recent discoveries. The city's rectangular street pattern is clearly shown set within its defensive walls and dominated by the elevated temple. Surrounding countryside is shown with outlying settlements and local characters. Some centrefold loss expertly repaired.
