Description: Map. Engraving with hand coloring. Image measures 20" x 27.75".

Comments: This large map depicts the southern part of Mexico with the Yucatan Peninsula, as well as parts of Guatemala and modern-day Belize. Its most remarkable feature is its topographical detail, which is among the best recorded in a British atlas. The map provides an informative view of the country's major watersheds and volcanoes with fine engraving. It was published in Pinkerton' "Modern Atlas" and is in very good condition. Minor wear to the center fold. Some chips to the margins not affecting the image. John Pinkerton (1758-1826) was a prominent English mapmaker known for his large and impeccably detailed maps. In this manner, his work marks a turning point from the earlier emphasis on decoration toward a greater emphasis on information. His "Modern Atlas" is one of the best British atlases of the period and is a fine example of his work.

I'm writing to let you know that the book arrived safely yesterday. I also wanted to thank you for your very professional and awesome packaging job. It's so nice to know that some people do care when packaging vintage and antique books for their customers (I say this because I've had some bad experiences recently with some other book dealers who did a miserable job of packaging a book from 1824). Best, -V.W.
