Partie Orientale de la Terre Ferme ou l'on trouve la Guiane.

Attractive antique engraved map of region between the Amazon and Orinoco Rivers, published by the Vaugondy firm in Paris around 1749.

The map shows much of the interior including forts and towns on the Amazon and Orinoco, interior lakes, and mountain systems.

Gilles Robert de Vaugondy (1688-1766) was the head of a leading family of geographers in eighteenth century France. Gilles got his start when he jointly inherited the shop of Pierre-Moullart Sanson, grandson of the famous geographer Nicholas Sanson. The inheritance included the business, its stock of plates, and a roller press. In 1760 Gilles became geographer to King Louis XV. His son, Didier Robert de Vaugondy (ca. 1723-1786), was also a geographer and the two worked together. They were known for their exactitude and depth of research. In 1757, they produced the Atlas Universel, considered an authority for many years.
