Tabula Nautica ... H Hudsono Anglo ... 1612 : J. & T.De Bry

click here to view a large version in a separate window

De Bry's rare and attractive chart of the North Atlantic is a reduced version of Hessel Gerritsz's original map of 1612, the first to show Hudson Bay. Gerritsz's map is found in the first printed record of Henry Hudson's fourth and final voyage. With few men surviving the voyage, the map found its way to Amsterdam where it was first published. The appearance of "Mare Magnum" indicates Hudson's belief that he had found the Pacific although what at first appears to be Hudson Bay is in fact James Bay. Burden states "the misconception of James Bay and its two large bays at the southern end would persist for decades to come". Printed, typically, on thin paper this is, nevertheless, a good example from Johann and Theodore De Bry's "Petits Voyages" - a compendium of the most recent and important accounts of travel and settlement around the world.
