A delightfully whimsical 1846 map of South America, from a German kinderatlas or children's atlas. The map covers the entire continent from Panama to Cape Horn with countries divided with color coding. The whole is surrounded by a wide border featuring charming vignettes meant to illustrate the peoples and cultures of the region. These include an indigeno fighting a crocodile, another trapping a bull, colonial officers with a bound man and woman, a portrait of a hunter, etc. The whole is surrounded by a bust of Alexander von Humboldt. The map is accompanied by its adjacent page, which includes a poetic history of South America in German gothic type. The wonderful and rare map was drawn by Anst. V A. Boeden of Berlin for inclusion as plate no. in xin x in the 1846 issue of Julius Loewenberg's Geographische Landerfibel.
