Brazil. In 1694 Pieter Schenk acquired a number of copperplates from the Blaeu estate and published them together with maps from Janssonius and Visscher in his "Atlas Contractus". Schenk was an imminent Dutch publisher and cartographer. This is the 'New and Accurate Map of Brasil' from the atlas. This handsome map is interesting from the view point that there is next to no cartographic detail or information beyond the very edges of the coastline. Rhumb lines, a compass rose and a pair of galleons are engraved in the Atlantic ocean. The lower right corner is filled with a wonderfully elaborate title cartouche and assorted mileage scales.

Original hand-coloured, double-page engraved maps, blank on verso, fine impression. Slightly age toned.
