According to Frederik M??ller's catalogue this print is possibly a copy from the Grand Voyages part XIII by the De Bry brothers.

In the Rijksmuseum this print has been archived as FM 1656, but in the map of Brazil listed in the Frederik Muller catalogue the Latin cartouche, illustration of a sugar mill and the chart of the northern part of Brazil are missing. The key also has an extra number and the key is located in a different place.

The illustration itself measures 18,5 x 93 cm, the caption, including title, 21 x 93 cm.

Cf. Koninklijke Bibliotheek, The Hague, inv. nr. 185 B 14 part II, after p. 386.

On this map Recife is called 'Povo' .
