Venezuela cum parte Australe Novae Andalusiae.


Blaeu's dramatic Venezuela map extends from Rio de la Hacha to Trinidad and the mouth of the Orinoco and includes the Lesser Antilles up to Dominica. The interior shows good topographical details, many place names and Indian tribes, as well as charming vignettes of sheep, birds, and monkey-like creatures. Two decorative cartouches, compass roses, and sailing ships adorn this beautifully preserved and colored exemplar of an important South America map.
