It features the Spanish Conquistadors approaching natives. The map appeared in the 1798 edition of Cassini's "Nuovo Atlante Geografico Universale". The map is in good condition with some foxing. Giovanni Maria Cassini (1745 - 1824) was a geographer, engraver and globe maker based in Rome, Italy. Best known for his globes, his maps stood out for their elaborate engravings, which he did himself, unlike most publishers of the time. This is a beautiful example of his distinctive work.
