Fine Chart of the Magellan Straits by Bellin
This beautiful and important original map of the Magellin Straits is extremely detailed and is a great example of Bellin's mastery at presenting important information in both an attractive and functional manner. His large cartouche gives details in both French and Dutch, and has a reference, A to I to help readers identify locations on the map.
