NOS CONTRAFORTES DOS ANDES: reflexões geográficas sobre a cartografia do Brasil setecentista (on Andes foothills: geographical reflections on brazilian 18th-century cartography)
No presente trabalho pretende-se arrolar algumas ideias de conjunto sobre a Cartografia do século XVIII referente ao Brasil, segundo uma leitura geográfica. O universo refere-se a três coleccções portuguesas: uma particular - a Casa da Ínsua -, e duas públicas - a Biblioteca Nacional, em Lisboa, e a Biblioteca Pública Municipal do Porto -, com os problemas inerentes às características de cada uma, como a proveniência diversa, o âmbito cronológico distinto, a variação das escalas ou os aspectos temáticos de cada peça.
Palavras chave: cartografia antiga, Brasil setecentista.
In this work I have sought to provide an outline of Brazilian eighteenth-century cartography in a geographical reading. Three collections have been studied: a private one called “A casa da Insua”, and two public ones (the National Library at Lisbon and the Public Municipal Library at Porto, as well as issues concerning each one’s characteristics, as diverse origin, different chronological scope, variation of scales or thematic aspects each piece.
Key words: early cartography, eighteenth-century Brazil.
