Antique map titled 'Venezuela, New Granada (..)'. A decorative and detailed mid-19th century map of the northern part of South America (including modern day Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Suriname and French Guiana) which was drawn and engraved by J. Rapkin (vignettes by H. Winkles & W. Lacey) and published in John Tallis & Co.'s The Illustrated Atlas (London & New York: circa 1851).
