Description: [South America] CARTE DU PARAGUAY DU CHILI... Double-page, showing rivers, mountain/hill ridges, etc., with great attention to rivers and Spanish settlements. Full-text of cartouche: “Carte du Paraguay du Chili Du Detroit de Magellan &c. Dressee sur les Descriptions des PP. Alfonse d’Ovalle, et Nicolas Techo, et sur les Relations et memoires de Brouwer, Narbouroug, Mr. de Beauchesne &c. Par Guillaume De L’Isle Geographe de l’Academie Royale des Sciences. A Paris Chez l’Auteur sur le Quae de l’Horlage avec Privilege du Roi pour 20 ans 1703. Gravee par Liebaux le fils.” 3rd state, with “Rue des Canettes...” changed to “Quae de l’Horlage.” No credit to Renard. Tooley dates the 3rd state as “1703-[1708+]” but probably pre-1718: “Premier Geographe du Roy” has not been added to the cartouche. Below cartouche: “C. Simonneau inv. Et secit.” The following explorer’s routes are shown: Ferdinand Magellan (Pacific portion of his circumnavigation, 1520). Pedro Sarmiento (in the Pacific, 1589. On several other occasions, Sarmiento was captured by English Pirates and had been taken as a captive to England.) Amerigo Vespucci (Atlantic, 1502. Vespucci’s route is rarely shown on 18th Century maps.) “Capt. Charp” (a. k. a. Bartholomew Sharp, an English pirate, in 1681.) “Icy Mr. Halley’s trouve la Mer glacee,” a reference to the icebergs Halley encountered on his voyage in 1700. Beauchesne (Brower, on the Atlantic side of Tierra del Fuego and Patagonia, noting his discovery of an island in 1701.) La Roche (noting his discovery of 2 islands in 1675.) Hand coloring is probably at least partly later. 19 ½ x 23 ¼ in. Sight condition near fine. Under glass. Not examined out of frame.
