¤ Nice map extending from the Isla Margarita in the northwest to the coast of northern Brazil near Sao Luis east of the Amazon delta. The map locates at its center a large inland sea, Parime Lacus, on whose northwestern shore lies the fabled city Manoa del Dorado, or the golden city of the Incas.
The search for this city led many explorers, including Sir Walter Raleigh, on wild adventures through the jungles. The map is beautifully decorated with three cartouches, ships, sea battles, monsters and a fine compass rose.

No text on verso. From a French composite atlas. V.d. Krogt, Atlantes Neerlandici, Vol. I, 9840:1.1.
