Unique manuscript map of South America. Award winning manuscript card, prepared by Antonio Raggio for the 11th Congreso de la Union Postal Universal (World Postal Congress) Exposition Filatelica Internacional, held in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1939.

The award was given to Raggio by La Sociedad Filatelica Argentina for a collection of maps on cards drawn by Raggio for the event, the majority of which consisted of a map and companion illustrated fact sheet. It would seem that the manuscript cards were likely intended as models for the engraving of stamps.

The attached link shows the award issued to Raggio.

The Postal Union Congress is the main international meeting of the Universal Postal Union, used to discuss various issues affecting international postal services, such as legislation, the political climate, and other strategic issues.
The first congress was held in Bern, Switzerland in 1874, and was attended by delegates from 22 countries, most of them European. The meetings are normally held every four years, although both World Wars have caused cancellations.
The 11th congress of the World Postal Union (Union Postale Universelle - U.P.U.) was held in Buenos Aires, Argentina 1 April to 23 May 1939. There were 141 delegates, 33 experts and 174 participants from 81 member countries, and 1,108 motions were discussed at the congress.
