This is a good example of the 1833 first edition map of Peru and Bolivia by David H. Burr. It covers all of Peru and Bolivia. Bolivia's claims to the Atacama Desert and Peru's claims to the Tarapaca region - both of which are today part of Chile, are shown here. Towns, rivers, mountains, lakes and other topographical features are noted. Elevation is rendered by hachure and political and regional territories are color-coded.In 1836, shortly after this map was prepared, the Peru-Bolivian Confederation came into existence. The Confederation proved ephemeral, collapsing in 1839 following the War of the Confederation, a conflict between Chile, Peruvian rebels, and Argentina against the Peru-Bolivian Confederation. According to Ristow, although Burr is credited on the title page, he left this atlas incomplete. He was appointed as topographer to the U.S. Post Office, and of the siin xty-three maps finally included in this atlas, only completed eight. The rest of the maps were then completed by Illman and Pilbrow in Burr's style. This map was ‘Entered according to act of Congress in the year 1833 by Illman and Pilbrow in the Clerk's office of the District Court for the Southern District of New York', but was not published until the atlas was released in 1835. Published by D. S. Stone in Burr's New Universal Atlas.
