Description:

Superb detailed post Tasman map extending from Africa to Australia. Decorated with scrolled title and dedication panels, compass roses and rhumb lines. Published in Cartes de Geographie les plus nouvelles et les plus fideles, ..Geographe ordinaire du Roy. Du Val records the following Dutch discoveries on the Australian coast 1616 by Hartog in the Eendracht, 1619 Houtman in the Dordrecht and Amsterdam, 1622 VOC Leewin, 1623 Carstenez in the Leijden, Nuyt&#8217s in 1627 in the Gulden Zeepard (incorrectly date 1625), 1628 de Witt&#8217s in the Vianen and the two voyages of Tasman in 1642 and 1644. The map does not record the discoveries of Willem Janz in the Duyfken on Cape York Peninsula in 1606 which were the first recorded European discoveries in Australia. The only printed map to show these are on Jansson&#8217s, Indiae Orientalis Nova Description published in 1630. The map also records the position of shipwrecks in the region. A scarce map produced in small numbers. References CLA MOTA 6.19 ill pg 86/87 CLA STCS 108 ill pg106/107 NLA Bib ID 2932894 OAR CEII 155 ill pg 158 SCH AU 86 TOO MOAA 539 NGIGL/LFLG
