Origin: Amsterdam, c.1700.

The Covens & Mortier edition of Blaeu's map of Bahia De Todos Sanctos (All Saints Bay) in Brazil, with a large inset plan of the City of Sao Salvador. It first appeared in 1662 in the Americas volume of Blaeu's final atlas, the 'Atlas Major'. The plate survived the fire at the Blaeu publishing house in 1672 and was finally acquired by Covens & Mortier. Barry Ruderman notes: In the late 1630s, Holland attempted to reassert its claim over Brazil by establishing a series of forts along the coastline. One of the best-documented colonies was the expedition led by Prince Maurits of Nassau, who attempted to assemble an intellectual court in the New World. He brought with him a group of highly accomplished artists, mapmakers, and scientists to record the mysteries of Brazil. Known as Sao Salvador, or Bahia, the town was first founded by the Portugese in 1549 and was a favorite haunt for pirates and merchant privateers. The town flourished with the development of the sugar plantations and became an important political and economic center.
