This is a fine print reproduction of Brue's map of Colombia from the early 19th Century. Brue’s large map is highly detailed in every aspect, showing the wealth of knowledge which had been gleaned over the centuries since Europeans first set foot in South America.

This map includes a short stretch of Central America, and the Antilles Islands. Geographical features including mountains, rivers, including the magnificent Amazon drainage system - largest in the world, its estuaries, streams, etc., are all depicted in great detail. The Andes are beautifully rendered and in the lower right quadrant of the map Brue has included profiles comparing the various heights of specific areas in the great mountain chain, based on the findings of M.A. de Humboldt, the famed Prussian geographer, naturalist and explorer.
