BLAEU, Willem Janszoon. [17th century map of Brazil]
Novus Brasiliæ Typus. Amsterdam, 1631, Latin text edition. Coloured. 380 x 495mm. Paper lightly toned overall.
Brazil, orientated with north to the right. The title cartouche is of two indians, an inset map shows the area around Salvador, and vignettes copied from de Bry show a hammock, goats, a battle and cannibals cooking lunch. The plate was engraved by Jodocus Hondius Jnr, son of the Jodocus who purchased the Mercator plates. When he died in 1629 many of his plates were sold to Blaeu, much to the chagrin of the Hondius firm run by Henricus Hondius and Jan Jansson, who were forced to rush the engraving of new plates. This is a very early example of Blaeu's printing, published in the third edition of his 'Appendix Theatri A. Ortelii', a year after his first atlas and four years before the first issue of his 'Novus Atlas'. KOEMAN: Bl 3.

Written by Eugenio Rodriguez, a Sicilian naval officer, the text describes the area as a tourist but also includes a socio-economic commentary. The detailed view, 'Veduta della citta di São Sebastiano di Rio de Janeiro dall’Isola das Cobras', was lithographed by Frederico Gatti and Gaetano Dura after sketches by Baron Karl Robert von Planitz; the chart of the bay was drawn by Rodriguez from English sources.
