S. A. Mitchell's 1849 map of Brazil. Covers all of modern day Brazil from Guiana and Venezuela in the north to Uruguay in the south and from Bolivia in the west to the Atlantic. Depicts Brazil divided into its constituent states with some reference to indigenous groups throughout. Insets in the lower right and left quadrants focus on Paraguay and the environs of Rio de Janeiro, respectively. This map also includes the adjacent French, British, and Dutch Guianas, and parts of Bolivia, Venezuela, Uruguay, and Argentina. Political and topographical features are noted and color coded with elevation rendered by hachure. The whole is engraved and colored in Mitchell's distinctive style with green border work and vivid pastels. Mitchell published this chart in his atlas from 1846 to the late 1850s before discontinuing the series and selling his map plates to DeSilver. This map was issued in the 1849 edition of the New Universal Atlas. It was the last edition of that atlas to be published by Mitchell prior to selling the plates and rights to the atlas to Thomas Cowperthwait in 1850.
