First edition. A fine large map of South America, engraved by A.Peyrounin. The relatively unknown Amazon region is left without speculation. However, Sanson includes the mythical Lac de Parime with Manoa del Dora (city of gold) on its western shore. Very good detail along the Rio de la Plata and the region west of the Andes, along the Chilean Coastline. There is considerable detail of towns and cities.

Nicolas Sanson was to bring about the rise of French cartography, although the fierce competition of the Dutch would last until the end of the century. His success was partly owing to the partnership with the publisher Pierre Mariette. In 1644 the latter had purchased the business of Melchior Tavernier, and helped Sanson with financial support in producing the maps. In 1657 Pierre Marriette died, however his son, also named Pierre, co-published Les Cartes Générales de toutes les parties du Monde. the following year. It was the first folio French produced world atlas.
