Carte Van Nova Guinea ... : W. C. Schouten

click here to view a large version in a separate window

In 1615, a Dutch expedition set out for southern South America to look for a passage round South America to the East Indies. The expedition was led by Isaac Le Maire, with Willem Schouten as skipper. This expedition, one of the most important Dutch voyages of the seventeenth century, discovered Le Maire's Strait, and rounded Cape Horn. On the way back, a dispute broke out between the principals. Schouten's version of events, published in 1618 by Willem Blaeu, included this detailed map of the north coast of New Guinea, showing the tracks of the expedition as far as the Moluccas. Trimmed to the neatline and laid on old paper, otherwise a good example of an important map rarely found for sale.
