Title : Praefecturae Paranambucae Pars Borealis. . . / Praefecturae Paranambucae Pars Meridionalis... / Praefectura de Ciriii ... / Praefecturae de Paraiba ....
Map maker : BLAEU, J..
Date : Amsterdam, 1662.

Description :Matching set of four maps covering the Brazilian Capitanias. Latin text on verso. First edition of the last part of the Latin "Atlas maior" dedicated to America.

The Dutch West India Company, appointed Count Johan Maurits Governor-General of Dutch Brazil in 1636 and was in power until 1644. Upon Maurits return to Europe, he commissioned Kaspar van Baerle to document the flora and fauna, climate, inhabitants, religion, and languages of the coastal provinces of Brazil. The resulting work, "Rerum per octennium in Brasilia" published by Blaeu, is one of the finest works of Brazil ever produced. The maps in this work, with alterations, later appeared in later editions Blaeu's "Atlas Major".
These detailed maps are highly embellished with cartouches, coats of arms, ships and a sea battle. The large scene on the upper quarter of the map depict the commercially important sugar cane industry. A scarce, important and quite beautiful map.



Condition : Good and strong impressions in very attractive colors. Mint condition.
