Mexico: Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico, 1989. First Edition. Folio (13"). Cloth. Near Fine / Very Good. [x],  3-207 pp. with text in two columns; approx. 100 b&w maps and 50 in full colour with some fold-out; sewn-in bookmark; Index of Map Sources; Index of Figures; Bibliography and Subject Index. An exceptional combination of images and accompanying text, with maps from the time of Hernan Cortes and "La Mer del Sur' (1522) through to the late 18th century. The latter chapters include the voyages of Captain Vancouver, and the bibliography demonstrates the breadth of the author's research beyond Spanish language sources including, by way of example, Henry Wagner's 'Spanish Voyages to the Northwest Coast of America in the Sixteenth Century' (1966) and 'The Cartography of the Northwest Coast of America to the Year 1800' (1968). The front hinge has some loss of the endpapers, but the binding itself remains tight and firm, with all signatures sewn. A copy. Shipping will be extra due to size and weight of the book.
