Engraved folding map, with an inset map of the Brazilian coast at the top, and a naval battle around Olinda, Pernambuco, Brazil, at the bottom.

This map comes from a later abridgment of De Bry's "Grand Voyages."

Johann Ludwig Gottfried (c. 1584 - 1633)

Gottfried was a 17th-century German theologian, translator, author, and editor. For a long time, it was thought that Gottfried was merely a pseudonym for Johann Philipp Abelin (d. 1634), however, this has apparently been refuted. Gottfried's most extensive original work is the Gottfriedsche Chronicle.

Newe Welt und Americanische Historien [1655]

The present engraving comes from Johann Ludwig Gottfried's abridgment of De Bry. The illustrations from this work are after Theodor de Bry's and Matthaeus Merian's works in parts 1-12 of the "Grand Voyages". The first edition of the abridgment was published in 1631. The second edition was published by Merian's heirs in Frankfurt in 1655.

Cf. Sabin 50; Wüthrich, Merian III, 295; JCB II, 443; Leclerc 265; Muller 636; NDB VI, 677.
