Notes: One of the first separate maps of the newly independent Brazil, shortly after the return of the King of Portugal to Brazil, leaving his son to rule the country. The map is surrounded by details on the country, its soil, climate, history, populations, city information, government and a host of other historical and political details. Carey & Lea's Atlas is highly prized not only for its cartographic information but the marvelous information about each of the states and territories which is included.
