 Brazil 

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.
