Attractive map of Mexico and Yucatan. Title cartouche at top right. Maps by Sanson in original colour are rare. Nicolas Sanson was founder of the French school of mapmakers, at a time when the leadership in European cartography passed from the Low Countries to France. This map was published in Bion’s treatise on globes. Nicolas Bion was a famous French mathematical and scientific instrument maker.

Copper engraving. Original colour. Very good condition. Small (1cm.), very faint library stamp on right border, but otherwise a clean bright map. Size: 26.5 x 17 cm. (10 x 6 inches).
