Plan Del curso de los Rios Huallaga y Ucayali, y d la pampa del Sacramento.  Levantado Por el P. Fr. Manuel Sobreviela, Guardian del Colegio et Ocopa, Dada a luz Por le Sociedad de Amantes del Pais de Lima Ano 1791.

Extremely rare first edition of this important early map of part of northeastern Peru with the Marañon River at the top, the Ucayali River at right, the Huallaga River in the center and Lima at lower left, prepared from the original manuscript maps of Father Manuel Sobreviela.

The map is noteworthy for its content, as well as being one of the few maps published in Lima in the 18th Century.

Between 1789 and 1790 Father Manuel Sobreviela travelled along the Huallaga River and created a map of the area around the Huallaga and Ucayali Rivers. Sobreviela was made Guardian of the Colegio de Ocapa in 1786. The map originally appeared in Mercurio peruano de historia, literatura, y noticias publicas que da à luz la Sociedad academica de amantes de Lima, published by En la imprenta real de los Niños Huérfanos...in Lima (1791-95)

Key at lower left indicates towns populated by Christians, converts, and the unconverted, symbols defining the territory occupied by the converted and paths through the mountains. Cartographic elements include scale, degrees of latitude and longitude, names of rivers, mountains, lakes, settlements, and regions. Also includes native American man holding bow and arrows and wearing feathered headdress, and a woman and child holding birds.

This is the first edition of the map. There is a second edition of the map, which is heavily revised (and published 40 years later), most notably the removal of the dedication to Carlos IV of Spain: /gallery/detail/22089
