Praefecturae Paranambucae Pars Meridionalis : G.Marcgraf / C.Barlaeus / J.Blaeu

A rare and important map of part of the Brazilian south east coast and interior southwards from around the Sao Paulo region. Published by Joan Blaeu in Barlaeus' "Rerum per octennium in Brasilia ... historia" in 1647 and subsequently, with minor amendments and verso text in the "Atlas Maior" this is one part of a famous map also issued, with additional sheets, as a composite wall map of the country. The maps were produced by a young German polymath, Georg Marcgraf, serving as cartographer, astronomer, zoologist and botanist to Count Johan Maurits, Governor General of the Dutch West India Company holdings in Brazil from 1637 to 1644. Marcgraf's map is of interest both for its large-scale and detail and for the vignettes which record aspects of native Brazilian's lifestyle and indigenous animal species. This finely engraved and very decorative map has a vignette of part of a fishing scene and has the ocean dotted with Dutch sailing ships. Trimmed close and laid on old paper.
