This great small map linking Portugal with her colony in South America is a beautifully composed map. The map is filled with impressive detail of Portugal. However, it is the addition of a large inset of Brazil showing the Capitanias that makes the map outstanding. The exquisite title cartouche fills the remaining area above the inset with Neptune, a queen, cherubs, coats of arms and the Portuguese fleet.
Faint damp stain in upper margin.
