Description:

Nice example of this early state of Barent Langenes's map of Brazil, which first appeared in the 1598 edition of Langenes's Caert-Thresoor, published in Middelburg.

The present map is one of the earliest obtainable maps of Brazil.  Includes a fascinating set of vignettes showing cannibalism. 

Langenes's map was first issued in his Caert-Thresoor and later re-published in by Bertius, in his Tabularum Geographicarum, beginning in 1600, with the total number of appearances of this map running to no less than 12 appearances between 1598 and 1650, in the two works by Langenes and Bertius.
