recent arrival
An interesting pair of plates relating to early Peru. A plan of Lima is annotated with the locations of some 30 major buildings and city locations while, below, a view of the legendary silver mines of Potosi. Although unsigned the plate may have been prepared by Emanuel Bowen whose maps were used in John Harris's 'Collection of Voyages and Travels'. Paper a little age-toned but very acceptable.
