 South America 

HOLLE, Leinhart. [Wall map of South America]
Schulwandkarte von Süd-America gezeichnet, lithographirt und gedruckt von L. Holle... Wolfenbüttel: Holle & Geographisch-Lithographisches Institut, c.1870. Original colour. Lithographic map, dissected and laid on linen, as issued, total 1370 x 1050mm. A few small stains, lacking a brass hanging ring.
A scarce wall map for schools, with an inset map of the Galapagos Islands. As the Gran Chaco region (between Bolivia, Paraguay and Argentina), is marked as part of Argentina, it would seem the map was published soon after the end of the Paraguayan War (also known as War of the Triple Alliance), 1864-70. Such school maps are rare, usually disposed off when damaged or superceded.

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.
