From Montanus' "De Nieuwe en Onbekende Weereld: of Beschryving van America". A fascinating view of the fort of Porto Calvo in Brazil. Porto Calvo controlled the passage of the Manguaba River, and was at the frontline of Portuguese-Dutch hostilities in the early 1630's. It is depicted here as a simple wooden fort surrounded by a few small cottages. 18th-19th Century Subjects , Town Views - Central & South America, and the West Indies , South America
