A nice example of the scarce third edition of Ruscelli's map of South America, extending from Labrador to Florida.

The map is based upon a 1548 map of the same title published in Giacomo Gastaldi's La Geografia. One of the earliest obtainable maps of South America.

The map was first issued in 1561. The plate was revised in 1574 and again in 1598.  The 1598 rework can be distinguished by the inclusion of a sailing ship in the lower right corner.

Condition Description: Minor discoloration at centerfold.
