Description

Nice example of this finely executed map of the East Coast of Brazil, prepared to illustrate the expedition of Prince Maximillian of Wied-Neuwied.

Neuwied, was a German explorer, ethnologist and naturalist. He led a pioneering expedition to southeast Brazil between 1815 and 1817, from which the his work Reise nach Brasilien, which first revealed to Europe real images of Brazilian Indians, was the ultimate result. It was translated into several languages and recognized as one of the greatest contributions to the knowledge of Brazil at the beginning of the nineteenth century.
