General Map of The Argentine Republic and Neighbouring Countries, 1886
General Map of the Argentine Republic and neighbouring countries, 1886. The map shown here states that it was «made according to the latest official data» and «in the light of the latest plans and sketches» by Francisco Moreno, Argentine expert on the Commission for marking out the frontier with Chile, and by Lieutenant-Colonel José Olascoaga, Head of the "Military Typographic Office".
At the bottom, right, the map bears the inscription in the Library of Congress.
As may be observed, the international boundary is traced along the centre of the Beagle Channel, showing Picton, Nueva and Lennox and all the other islands and islets extending southwards as far as Cape Horn as being under Chilean sovereignty.
