With English and Portuguese-Language Manuscript Annotations

Interesting map of Brazil from the 1814 edition of Matthew Carey's General Atlas. The map shows the territory of Brazil from the mouth of the Amazon to the Rio de la Plata. 

In this detailed and well-executed American-published map, the many rivers, mountain ranges, cities, and islands of Brazil are all shown. Detail extends several hundred miles inland, but the westernmost part of the map is left blank and labeled "Peru."

Fascinating English and Portuguese language annotations appear in the upper portion of the map as well as near the title. These detail the demographics, education system, culture, and more of Brazil.

Condition Description
Original hand-color. Extensive, fairly early, manuscript annotations at the top in pencil.
