The Travels of Jean de Léry to Brazil
Pieter van der Aa.

Leiden, 1707. A map of the environs of Rio de Janeiro, published to illustrate Jean de Léry's account of his experiences in Brazil as a member of the Chevalier de Villegaignon's attempt to colonise Brazil for France. de Léry (1536-1613), a Protestant, joined the expedition expecting religious freedom in the new colony of 'France Antarctique', but religion split the colony, making it easy for the Portuguese to defeat it. The title cartouche features a well-filled gallows, perhaps illustrating the religious strife. Returning to France de Léry published his 'History of a Voyage to the Land of Brazil', which van der Aa included in a collection of important voyages, with this map.
