Description:

Map of the East Indies showing the Australian coast from &#8216TLAN DT VAN D&#8217EENDRACHT&#8217 in Western Australia to Cape York Peninsula. It was initially based on Blaeu&#8217s 1635 map and reissued by G.Valk and P.Schenk after they obtained the plate from Hondius who had issued his version in 1638. Valk and Schenk were Amsterdam cartographers, engravers, globemakers and publishers. They acquired a number of engraving plates from other important mapmakers such as the Blaeus, the Visschers and Jan Jansson, reissuing them with additions to reflect new discoveries. Hondius based his map on Blaeu&#8217s of the same title with both being geographically identical. The only changes he made were to the decorative elements, such as the title cartouche and dedication. When first issued it was only the second printed map to record the Dutch discoveries made by Dirk Hartog on the western Australian coast in October 1616, Jan Carstensz on the western side of Cape York Peninsula in January 1623 and de Wit&#8217s on the northwest coast of Australia in 1628. De Wit&#8217s discoveries had first been shown on Gerritsz&#8217s map of 1628 under the name &#8216G.F. de Wits Landt&#8217. Valk and Schenk have cleverly inserted the Australian coast line from &#8216G.F. de Wits Landt&#8217 to the southern limits of Cape York which incorporated the discoveries made by Abel Tasman on his second voyage 1644. A galleon and a compass rose are the only embellishments that have been removed to incorporate these new changes. References: Tooley 725, Tooley p.198-12.
