Amerique Meridionale

Le Rouge's fascinating South America map from his Atlas Nouveau Portatif shows Paraguay larger than Brazil. Amazonia is called "Missions Portugueses" and a mysterious Pacific landfall is labeled "Terre decouverte par David en 1686." A decorative title cartouche adds to the map's appeal.
