Map of Pernambuco

Map of Pernambuco

Map of Pernambuco.
Praefecturae Paranambucae pars Meridionalis.
Between 1630 and 1654 large parts of Brazil were occupied by the Dutch. During this period the area was mapped by the cartographers Cornelis Goliath (died in 1667/1668) and Georg Marcgraf. In 1643 they rendered the results of these mapping activities in an attractive wall chart. Joan Blaeu (1598-1673) published this atlas chart based on their map in 1662.
A large number of East Indiamen is depicted off the coast. This map may be linked to the charts: Koninklijke Bibliotheek, The Hague, inv. nr. 1049B13_094; Ibid, inv. nr. 1049B13_095; Ibid, inv. nr. 1049B13_097
The chart was previously published in: C. Barlaeus, Rerum per octennium in Brasilia, Amsterdam 1647
Cf. Koninklijke Bibliotheek, The Hague, inv. nr. 1043 B 14, after p. 38, 1 and Nationaal Archief, The Hague, inv. nr. VEL0695.
