Description:

ALLARD’S RARE DUTCH PERIOD MAP OF ASIA & AUSTRALIA

Superb and very rare map by Hugo Allard extending from Africa to Australia. 

An elaborate decorative cartouche occupies the entire lower section of the map and features an elephant, a camel, natives hunting ostriches and packed trade goods. To the lower right is a rococo style title panel with a cupid atop. Further embellishments include a number of galleons, two compass roses and at top left a scale of miles with two cupids. 

The map was first issued by Hugo Allard in 1697 and reissued by his son, Carel, with the only change being the imprint of Hugo’s name to Carel (here spelt Carol). All of Allard’s maps are rare due to the small output of the firm and are highly prized by collectors for their striking embellishments. 

The map records the following Dutch discoveries on the Australian coast: Hartog in the Eendracht 1616, the van Leeuwin 1622, Carstensz in the Leijden 1643, Nuyts in the Gulden Zeepaert 1627, de Wit in the Vianen 1628 and the two voyages of Abel Tasman on the Heemskerck and Zeehaen 1642-44. Also noted are the Trial Islands near present-day Dampier, named after the English ship the Trial which was wrecked there in 1622. The first recorded European discovery of Australia by Willem Jansz in the Duyfken on Cape York Peninsula in 1606 are not included. 

From Allard’s Atlas Major.
