Guiane Divisee En Guiane Et Caribane ... : N. Sanson / A. D'Winter

click here to view a large version in a separate window

Nicolas Sanson (1600-1667) is generally acknowledged as the founder of the great French school of geographers and cartographers that supplanted the Dutch as the leading European map-makers. His work was acclaimed for its geographical accuracy and high standard of engraving. As a consequence, his many maps received a wide diffusion. His career marks the start of the process by which Paris superseded Amsterdam as the centre of European map production. This is an uncommon and attractive map of the northern part of South America, from a Dutch edition. Lake Parima features significantly, with El Dorado shown on its western shore.
