Hohman Heirs 1746 Map of the Western Hemisphere with many fascinating features. In South America, the mythical Lake Xarayes is shown south of the Amazon. The Northwest, which had not yet been explored, is simply left blank.
Like many Hohmann maps, this one features a particularly detailed cartouche. It shows two pairs of native Americans, one holding up what appears to be a shrunken head. At their feet are trade goods, and in the background two exploding volcanoes.
