This grand copper-engraved map by Brue is printed on heavy paper with wide margins, royal seal, script title and elegant keyboard border. Brue’s large map is highly detailed in every aspect, showing the wealth of knowledge which had been gleaned over the centuries since Europeans first set foot in South America. The map is a highly detailed rendering of Brazil with an extra section pasted on to show the Upper Amazon as it extends across the continent.
Adrien-Hubert Brue (1786 - 1832) was a French cartographer active in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. He held the office of Geographe du Roi and often signed his maps as such. In this position Brue contributed to thousands of maps and numerous atlases. His maps are known for their beauty, clarity, accuracy, high standard of engraving, and quality paper which he used.
Condition: This map is in superb A condition. Lovely, original outline coloring with a color-coded key embellishes the map.
