1922 Small and Tan and Old and Lovely Brazilian Map of the Climates of Brazil

Never mind if you haven't been to Brazil. This exquisitely drawn, beautiful little map of the climates of Brazil (equatorial in the north, subtropical in the center, and temperate in the south) will take your breath away. The map was printed in Brazil in 1922 (date shown beneath map). The full map is shown in the last photo. Other photos show details from the map. The paper has a very nice patina and the font used is exquisite. The map has a lovely old look. Some foxing on the map, which appears darker in photo than on the map. You can hide the foxing with a mat, if you wish. Printed on thin paper; blank on the reverse. In very good condition. This is an original map, not a reproduction! Bananastrudel sells only originals. For other maps in this series: For all things Brazil, click on: For beautiful photos of Brazil from our other shop, click on: Sent to you flat, in an acid-free sleeve with sturdy backing. Size of map image: approx. 8.5" x 6.25" with at least one-inch margins
