Description:

C17th map showing the Dutch discoveries of Jan Cartenszoon in the Pera and the Arnhem on the coast of Queensland and New Guinea. Cartenszoon had left Ambon on 21 January 1623 and reached the western side of Cape York Peninsula on 12 April. On this map, the peninsula known today as Cape York is named ‘Carpentarie’, after the then governor-general of the VOC Pieter Carpentier. ‘Carpentaria’ was later applied to the adjacent gulf. On 7 May, Cartenszoon named the Coen River (present-day Archer River) near Weipa.
