Map of the area stretching from Seregipe del Rey to Itapuama.
Praefectura de Ciriii vel Seregippe Delrey cum Itapuama.
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 the wall map in 1662.
Several East Indiamen are shown lying at anchor off the coast.
