Amérique du Sud
- Amérique du Sud
Women in Cartography: Pinchon also composed a map of South America, in which she has detailed country borders, cities and towns, mountains and rivers. She has included another illustration reflecting the natural landscape of the area depicted in the map, as she did for North America above. Here Louisa draws two Topaz hummingbirds, which are common in the Amazon River basin. A red-breasted male with two long tail feathers looks after three eggs with a female bird rendered in yellow, red and blue.
