A very attractive and highly decorative 19th century map of South America, with fine original hand colour, which was published in Victor Levasseur's Atlas National Illustré (Paris: Pelissier, 1859-1872).

Published between 1842 and 1872, Victor Levasseur's 'Atlas National' was one of the most decorative and visually striking atlases of the 19th century. The map of South America exemplified this with its aesthetic and allegorical imagery. Illustrated are depictions of the continent's scenery; its fauna and flora and native people.
