BRASIL NUOVA TABULA

Code: M4009

Cartographer: RUSCELLI Girolamo

Date: 1561 Venice

Size: 19*26. cms

Rare & Naive Map of Brazil..First edition plate.

This is one of the earliest obtainable maps of Brazil. The map is oriented to the west and notes some coastal place names, a few scattered rivers, mountains, forests, and a large erupting volcano. While very little interior detail is given, the phrase Gli indi natij di questi paesi mangiano carne humana is engraved in the center of the map. This phrase translates to 'The Indians native to these countries eat human meat.' Later editions of this map replace this phrase with a cannibalistic scene.

Uncoloured as issued.

Very good condition
