Brasilia : P. Montanus

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A finely engraved and very attractive map of Brazil emphasising just how well the coastline was known and how little was known of the interior. Montanus' work "America", subsequently republished in an English translation by John Ogilby, was the best summary of knowledge of the New World at the end of the seventeenth century, its focus being on south, rather than north America reflecting European involvement in those areas. The engraving is decorated with a figured titlepiece at lower left and a mileage scale at lower left adorned with putti and surveying and navigating instruments.
