Peru in the 17th century

Blaeu presents a splendid map of Peru in the 17 century. The map appeared for the first time in the Atlantis Appendix of Willem Blaeu in 1630. This copy was published by his son Joan in the French version of the Atlas Novus in 1643-1650.

One easily recognizes Lake Titicaca and the coastal town of “Los Reyes” (best to see on third detail). Lima was founded on 18 January 1535 by Pizarro as Ciudad los Reyes . Even before the Inca living here in the 15th century, a famous oracle in the Rímac valley had come to be known as Lima.

On the fourth and last detail Ecaudor with cities Quito and Guayaquil is shown.
