El Dorado Shown on Lake Parime -- Fine Old Color Example

Terrific early regional map of the Northeastern part of South America, extending from Trinidad and Margarita Islands in the north to the mouth of the Amazon and Lac Caribes or Parime.

The map shows towns, rivers, lakes, mountains, islands and other details. One of the earliest obtainable regional maps of this area.

The map is based upon the Jodocus Hondius / Walter Raleigh map of 1597, the first map to reflect the explorations of Raleigh and Kemyis in 1594 and 1596 and the first map to identify El Dorado on Lake Parime (Manoa o El Dorado).

Nicholas Sanson (1600-1667) is considered the father of French cartography in its golden age from the mid-seventeenth century to the mid-eighteenth. Over the course of his career he produced over 300 maps; they are known for their clean style and extensive research. Sanson was largely responsible for beginning the shift of cartographic production and excellence from Amsterdam to Paris in the later-seventeenth century.

Sanson was born in Abbeville in Picardy. He made his first map at age twenty, a wall map of ancient Gaul. Upon moving to Paris, he gained the attention of Cardinal Richelieu, who made an introduction of Sanson to King Louis XIII. This led to Sanson's tutoring of the king and the granting of the title ingenieur-geographe du roi. 

His success can be chalked up to his geographic and research skills, but also to his partnership with Pierre Mariette. Early in his career, Sanson worked primarily with the publisher Melchior Tavernier. Mariette purchased Tavernier’s business in 1644. Sanson worked with Mariette until 1657, when the latter died. Mariette’s son, also Pierre, helped to publish the Cartes générales de toutes les parties du monde (1658), Sanson' atlas and the first French world atlas.
