Superb early map showing a number of the early Dutch discoveries on the Australian coast with an elaborate title cartouche. The source of the information for the map was based on the accounts of D.

Cunha's accounts were published by the Portuguese historian João de Barros (1496–1570), in his history of the Portuguese in their overseas territories, Asia de Ioam de Barros, dos fectos que os Portuguezes fizeram no descobrimento e conquista dos mares e terras do Oriente.
