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 
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.
