Guiana sive Amazonum Regio

Blaeu, W.
Guiana sive Amazonum Regio, 1635
14.5 x 19.5 in.
Original color.
Almost Fine, with light toning.
 
Beautiful map of the Guianas including all of the area from Margarita Island to present day São Luís. In the center of the map is Lake Parime, the legendary inland sea with El Dorado on its western shore. The Orinoco River and its lower tributaries are shown with some accuracy, but the mouth of the Amazon is still incomplete. A very decorative map from the foremost cartographer of the Dutch Golden Age.
