  AMERICA 
 South America 

HOLLE, Leinhart. [Wall map of South America]
Schulwandkarte von Süd-America gezeichnet, lithographirt und gedruckt von L. Holle... Wolfenbüttel: Holle & Geographisch-Lithographisches Institut, c.1870. Original colour. Lithographic map, dissected and laid on linen, as issued, total 1370 x 1050mm. A few small stains, lacking a brass hanging ring.
A scarce wall map for schools, with an inset map of the Galapagos Islands. As the Gran Chaco region (between Bolivia, Paraguay and Argentina), is marked as part of Argentina, it would seem the map was published soon after the end of the Paraguayan War (also known as War of the Triple Alliance), 1864-70. Such school maps are rare, usually disposed off when damaged or superceded.
