Rare early English map of Brazil, showing remarkable coastal details.

The map first appeared in Morden's Atlas Terrestris and is one of the earliest obtainable maps of Brazil published in England.

Robert Morden (d. 1703) was a British map and globe maker. Little is known about his early life, although he was most likely apprenticed to Joseph Moxon. By 1671, Morden was working from the sign of the Atlas on Cornhill, the same address out of which Moxon had previously worked. Most famous for his English county maps, his geography texts, and his wall maps, Modern entered into many partnerships during his career, usually to finance larger publishing projects.
