The map is highly detailed showing longitude and latitude, and locations of streets and all major buildings. The names of these buildings are in a legend coded with letters from the Latin alphabet, A – Q. A forested area is shown beyond the city, and the Rivery Paraguay is depicted flowing along the entire length of the city.

Condition: This map is in B condition with damp staining and foxing. Map would respond well to restoration.
