Title : Carte réduite de l'extrémité de l'Amérique méridionale dans la partie du Sud . . ..
Map maker : FREZIER, A.-M..
Date : Amsterdam, Pierre Humbert, 1717.
Size : 6.8 x 9.5 inches. / 17.2 x 24.1 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured.

Description :Map of the southern extremities prepared by the French military engineer, mathematician, spy, and explorer Amédée-François Frezier (1682-1773).
He is best remembered for bringing back five specimens of Fragaria chiloensis, the beach strawberry, from an assignment in South America, thus introducing this New World fruit to the Old.
Sailing aboard the St. Joseph, an armed merchant ship, for about five months, he arrived in Concepción, Chile, on June 16, 1712 after rounding Cape Horn.
Frézier ingratiated himself with the Spanish Governors, and based in Concepción, sketched maps of the ports that showed the best approaches for attack, where ammunition was stored and the routes of escape, estimated the strength of the Spanish colonial governments, the state of these colonies' natives, and examined the Spanish gold and silver mines. He also reported on the operations of the Church, the physical geography and flora and fauna of the area, as well as its agricultural products.
All of this was valuable information, which was immediately translated into other major European languages after its first appearance in French as Relation du voyage de la mer du Sud, aux côtes du Chili, du Pérou et de Brésil, fait pendant les années 1712, 1713, et 1714.
Complete title of the map "Carte réduite de l'extrémité de l'Amérique méridionale dans la partie du Sud ou sont comprises les nouvelles isles découvertes par les vaisseaux de St Malo depuis 1700 dont la partie de l'ouest est encore inconnüe le passage qu'on appelle icy du nom de Ste Barbe a esté nouvellement decouvert par une Tartane du mesme nom le 25 may 1713".
Condition : Folds as issued. Margins cut close as issued. Very good condition. Dark impression.
