Caption

Cannibal legends in Brazil. European legends about cannibals dismembering and cooking humans in a region of Brazil. The Amazon is partly visible at top left, with the rivers at upper left being the Araguaia and Tocantins. Numerous other rivers are labelled along the Atlantic coastline, southwards to the area marked 'Golfo de los reys', where modern-day Rio de Janeiro is located. This image was cropped from a map of America produced by the Spanish cartographer Diego Gutierrez in 1562. This map, 'Americae sive qvartae orbis partis nova et exactissima descriptio', was engraved by the Flemish artist Hieronymous Cock.
