Coste de Guayane autrement France Equionoctiale en La Terre-Ferme d'Amerique . . .  (with large inset of Isle Cayene)

Very rare map of the Northeast coastline of South America, from the mouth of the Orinoco River to the mouth of the Amazon River, centered on Galibis, Sapayes and the Isle de Cayene.

Shows a number of early place names, rivers, and a single cordillera mountain range, running on a straight northwest to southeast pattern, with part of the massive and mythical Lac Parime shown in the lower left corner, with Manoa el Dorado on its western coastline. This is the first time we have had the map in nearly 20 years.

Pierre Duval (1618-1683) was a French geographer, cartographer, and publisher who worked in Abbeville and Paris during the seventeenth century. He was born in the former city, in northeast France, before moving to Paris. Duval was the nephew of the famous cartographer Nicolas Sanson, from whom he learned the mapmaker's art and skills. Both men worked at the royal court, having followed the royal request for artists to relocate to Paris. In addition to numerous maps and atlases, Du Val's opus also includes geography texts. He held the title of geographe ordinaire du roi from 1650 and died in 1683, when his wife and daughters took over his business.
