This is a fine print reproduction of Brue's map of the southern portion of South America during the early part of the 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 the Americas. The map depicts Peru, Chile, Argentina and western Brazil. A number of early routes and trails are shown in red. The topography is represented in hachure. River systems and the magnificent chain formed by the Andes Mountains are rendered in detail.

Adrien-Hubert Brue (1786 - 1832) was a French cartographer active in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. He held the office of Geographe du Roi and often signed his maps as such. In this position Brue contributed to thousands of maps and numerous atlases. His maps are known for their beauty, their clarity and accuracy. As was the case with most cartographers, many of his maps were published posthumously. Pierre-Jacques Picquet, the son and heir of his partner Charles Picquet, published the maps following the death of Brue, and they continued to be updated and republished for decades.

What can be referred to as modern cartography has been around for over 550 years. Throughout that time an enormous amount of new land was discovered, cities were founded while others perished. International trade and travel became the norm, political borders were ever-changing, and numerous wars were waged. With all that being said, hundreds of thousands of maps were created that show such events and episodes in time.
