This is a lovely example of S. A. Mitchell's 1849 map of Chile, Argentina (La Plata) and Uruguay. Aconcagua, Chuapa, Santiago, and a number of other Andes volcanoes are noted. Shows Bolivia with an outlet to the Sea. Mostly depicts modern day Argentina. There is an inset of Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego on the bottom right. Political and topographical features are noted and color coded with elevation rendered by hachure.
This map drawn in 1849, the year before Argentina's independence from Spain. Following General Jose de San Martin's defeat of the Royalist forces and the subsequent liberation of Argentina, European and other Latin American settlers flocked to the region with dreams of rich farm lands and other natural wealth.
The whole is engraved and colored in Mitchell's distinctive style with green border work and vivid pastels. Mitchell published this chart in his atlas from 1846 to the late 1850s before discontinuing the series and selling his map plates to DeSilver. This map was issued in the 1849 edition of the New Universal Atlas. It was the last edition of that atlas to be published by Mitchell prior to selling the plates and rights to the atlas to Thomas Cowperthwait in 1850.
