¤ A highly decorative and distinctive map showing south America, superbly engraved by Arnold van Langeren. On the middle of the map, animals and scenes of cannibalism are depicted. Two very fine cartouches on both opposite corners. Map oriented with west at the top. The map extends from Florida to Tierra del Fuego with north oriented to the right of the page. Extremely detailed, particularly around the coasts, this map is one of the most lush examples of Dutch decorative engraving. It boasts vignettes of Brazilian cannibals, Patagonian giants, long eared dogs, and a fabulous lion-like creature, reported by Brazilian natives to be able to live without eating or drinking. There are two elaborate title cartouches and the surrounding seas are filled with monsters and galleons.
