FALKLAND ISLANDS AND PATAGONIA
J. RapkinH. WinklesW. Lacey
A map of the Falkland Isles and Patagonia made just prior the Argentina's and Chile's aggressive expansion into the area. Engraved views of the Jason Islands and Christmas Sound in Tierra del Fuego are shown, as are depictions of Native Fugean, penguins, and sea eagles.
Both scale bars are in miles, but the scale represented for the map of Patagonia is likely very inaccurate as it states that that is only ~25 smaller than the map of the Falklands, when in reality the difference in size between the two are much greater. Greenwich is used for the prime meridian; the scale was calculated from either the map's scale bar or the graticule and the coordinates were obtained via georeferencing.
