Large striking map depicting Brazil from the Amazon delta to Sao Paolo and inland to the Rio de la Plata olim Paraguay. The Amazon delta contains many small islands and a confusion of waterways. The coastline is well mapped, divided into captaincies with the location of many place names; the interior, however, is largely unexplored. The bold figural title cartouche features the scenery, natives and agricultural bounty of the region.
