Carte Marine de l'Amérique Meridionale. l'Anné 1749.
Berlin, 1749-70. Original outline colour. 450 x 530mm. Trimmed to plate at bottom. An unusual chart of South America below the Amazon, with a grid of only 1º published as plate XII of Brouckner's scarce Nouvel Atlas de Marine. Although dated 1749, it marks "P. S. Louis" ( Port Louis) in the Falklands, founded by Louis de Bougainville in 1764. Of interest is a note at ''B. de los Camarones'' in Argentina, suggesting a route to cross the Andes to Chiloé in the Pacific.
