PRAEFECTURAE | DE PARAIBA, ET | RIO GRANDE, Joan Blaeu (1662)Between 1630 and 1654 a large part of Brazil was occupied by the Dutch. In this period the area was surveyed and mapped by the cartographers Cornelis Goliath (deceased 1667/1668) and Georg Marcgraf. The results were compiled in a decorative wall map in 1643. Joan Blaeu (1598-1673) used the wall map as his source for this map in 1662.
