"Tabula Americae Specialis Geographica Regni Peru, Brasiliae, Terrae Firmae & Reg. Amazonumé"

Originally hand-colored copper etching

Published by the heirs of Johann Baptist Homann

Nuremberg, ca. 1730-35

Detailed map of the Northen half of the South American continent. Map reaches from Panama, Columbia, Venezuela, the Guyanas (then British, Dutch, Surinam and the French overseas department of Guyana), Equador, Peru, Brasilien (most of it, except the southernmost portion) and the northern part of Bolivia. Map reaches just a little south of the Tropic of Cancer. Amazing the run of the Amazon River with all its tributaries and the immenseness of Brazil' rain forest. The Equator runs right through the map. We also see some of the Carabic Islands, such as islands just north of the continent and the coast of Venezuela. St. Vincent and Barbados are the northernmost points. Upper eight has the elaborate baroque title cartouche.

Condition: The original hand coloring is absolutely typical and beautiful. Map has wide margins showing some handling use along their edges. Map is basically clean with only minor traces of age and use. Reverse side has no text print.

48 x 55,2 cm (ca. 18.9 x 21.7")
