Descripción

Large engraved wall-map laid down on cartographic linen (40 x 31 2/8 inches) in 32 sections, the title within a large decorative cartouche lower right by Jean-Michel Moreau, and featuring an Amazon with an Alligator, a cherub and angel fly above her, and a horse and a cornucopia appear opposite, with fine original hand-colour in outline. With the engraved label of Ch. Picquet on the verso with title in manuscript. A fine and attractive map of South America drawn in 1809 and based on the maps of La Cruz, Jefferys and others, by Pierre Lapie, a Colonel in the Imperial Corps of Engineers. Principally showing the Portuguese and Spanish possessions dividing the continent in two at a time when Napoleon's brother Joseph was on the Spanish throne and war raged in the Iberian Peninsula between Britain (and their Spanish and Portuguese allies) and France. Britain was the ultimate victor in 1814 when Napoleon abdicated. However the effects of the battle were felt in Europe and America for many decades to come: leading to the independence of many of Spain's American colonies and the independence of Brazil from Portugal in 1822. Catalogued by Kate Hunter at Arader Galleries. N° de ref. de la librería 72map72
