Patagons. A map from 1669

 
Below I copy a part of Alexis Hubert Jaillot's 1669 map (Nova Totius Americae sive novi orbis tabula...).

It shows the southern tip of South America.

Once again (as in my previous post) Patagonia is called Chica.

Three tall Patagon natives can be seen (beside the caption "Patagons") towering over two Europeans.

Above them, but out of Patagonia, in what is now central Argentina, a bear-like animal can be seen (in front of a wolfish dog and a jaguar?).
