An attractive miniature map of New Guinea and the Solomon Islands. The southern portions of these islands remain unexplored. A Latin note explains that New Guinea is so named because it lies at a similar latitude to the African Guinea, and that the land probably forms a part of the Great Southern Continent. Following the success of the folio atlases published in the low countries by Ortelius, Hondius and others, the demand grew for reduced size versions. These would be suitable to be carried in the pocket and used for ready reference. Several different versions of these maps were published in a variety of European languages.
