Description:

Facsimile edition by Da Capo Press and Theatrum Orbis Terrarum in 1968. Hardcover red cloth , with dark blue title panels and gilt lettering, 42 pages, 8 preliminary pages, 1 text map. Number 4 of &quotThe English Experience its record in early printed books published in facsimile.&quot Schoutens accounts describe his passage via Terra del Fuego to the East Indies. In 1615 Willem Cornelisz Schouten sailed from Texel in the Netherlands, in command of an expedition sponsored by Isaac Le Maire and his Australische Compagnie in equal shares with Schouten. The purpose of the voyage was to search for Terra Australis and to seek a new route to avoid the trade restrictions of the Dutch East India Company (VOC) by finding a new route to the Pacific and the Spice Islands. In 1616 Schouten rounded Cape Horn and followed the north coasts of New Ireland and New Guinea and visited adjacent islands, including what became known as the Schouten Islands.
