This is a handsome Italian map of Brazil based on the cartography of Delisle. There is very good detail along the coastlines and a fair amount of information on the interior with numerous notations and the locations of Indian tribes. The map is adorned with a large pictorial title cartouche.
A fine impression on watermarked paper with light printer's ink residue and a few small chips and edge tears confined to the blank margins.
