A 17th century Dutch chart of Brazil with superb original colour

GOOS, Pieter.

Paskaart van Brasil van Rio de los Amazones, tot Rio de la Plata.
Amsterdam, c.1666. Fine original colour, with gold highlights. 450 x 555mm, with wide margins.

Remains of old backing paper on reverse.

A sea-chart of the coasts of Brazil and Uruguay from the Amazon delta to the River Plate, orientated with north to the right. The colour is the best we have seen on maps from Goos's sea atlas, 'De Zee Atlas ofte Water-Weereld'. Not only is the title cartouche fully coloured but it, the Equator, Tropic of Capricorn, the compass roses on the rhumb lines and the large letters on the map are highlighted in gold. It was published in a special example of Goos's sea atlas, 'De Zee Atlas ofte Water-Weereld'.
