Fine copper engraving of the shoreline of Brasil from the Amazon River to the Bay of All Saints. Decorated by a large floral cartouche.

Jacques Nicolas Bellin (1703–1772) was a French hydrographer and geographer. He was born in Paris and over a 50 year career, he produced a large number of maps of particular interest to the Ministère de la Marine. His maps of Canada and of French territories in North America are particularly valuable. Bellin set a very high standard of workmanship and accuracy thus gaining for France a leading role in European cartography and geography. Many of his maps were copied by other mapmakers of Europe. He was one of the Encyclopedistes, a group of 18th century intellectuals in France who compiled the 35-volume Encyclopedie which was edited by Denis Diderot.

Condition : In good condition with age toning and a stain in the cartouche. The top margin touches the neat line and the bottom margin has some chips.
