German woodcut-engraved map, dated 1733, of the Jesuit missions in and around "Paraquaria" (Paraguay), including parts of current-day Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil, engraved by J.C. Winkler and published in Joseph Stoecklein's Der Neue Welt-Bott, Theil XXVIII. Overall14-12" x 14", image 11-3/4" x 11-1/2". Interesting historical map pinpointing the Jesuit reduction missions (Misiones Orientales) in present-day Paraguay and Uruguay with parts of Brazil, Bolivia, Argentina and Chile prior to the 1750 Treaty of Madrid which set a line of demarcation between Spanish and Portuguese colonial territories in South America. Gold and silver from the Luz shipwreck of 1752 can be traced to these relocated missions. The key below the title identifies cities and missions that have been destroyed. Engraved by J.C. Winkler and published in Joseph Stoecklein's five-volume work on the Jesuit missionaries, minor toning in the blank margins and judiciously hand-colored.
