Scarce map of South America from Henri du Sauzet’s edition of Gerard Mercator’s atlas minor, entitled Atlas Portatif by du Sauzet. Published in 1734.
The edition of the map can be identified by the blank verso and the plate number 272 in the upper right corner. As with Janssonius van Waesberghe’s edition of atlas minor (1673), the verso is blank, but du Sauzet’s map includes a plate in the upper right corner. The verso on maps from Cloppenburg’s editions of atlas minor (1630, 1632, 1636) all have text.
