Paskaerte Zynde t’Oosterdeel van Oost Indien, met alle de Eylanden daer Ontrendt Gelegen van C. Comorin tot aen Japan. - Antique Map from 1666

Genuine antique
dated:

1666

Description:

Magnificent Dutch sea chart published in Goo’s De Zee Atlasofte Water-Weereld, which is recognised as being one the finest Dutch sea atlases ever published. It is elegantly
embellished with a superb decorative title that includes scroll work,
putti, three galleons, rosettes and a scale of distances. Its intended
use as a sea chart is borne by the extensive use of rhumb lines and
compass points.

Goos has north orientated to the left and Australia shown with the
Dutch discoveries, up to and including Tasman’s second voyage of 1644,
but excluding his first voyage discoveries due to the geographical
limits of the chart. Other Dutch discoveries in Australia are noted and
these include: Hartog 1616, Houtman 1619, van Leeuwin 1622,
Cartensz 1623, Nuyts 1627 and de Wit 1628. The map also records the first English sighting of the Australian coast
and the first recorded European shipwreck off the coast of Western
Australia by the Tryall, an East India Company ship under the command of John Brookes in 1622, that had run aground on the Tryal Rocks
(105km off the north-west coast of WA). Brookes’s subsequent untruthful
report to the authorities in Batavia, had him place the rocks further
west than their true position and in the direct course of VOC ships
sailing due north for the Sunda Straits. This new information
immediately prompted Gerritz, the VOC mapmaker in Batavia, to add the
rocks on Dutch charts where they remained in this incorrect position for
a period of almost two hundred years.

A number of mapmakers made near identical charts using the same orientation: van Loon 1661, Doncker 1669, Seller 1670.

The
characteristic feature of Dutch charts produced in the second half of
the 17th century were based solely on the results of
actual observation and where that was lacking, no coastlines were
shown. Goos
charts and atlases were often used by mariners at sea, which resulted in many
being either degraded or destroyed due to the less than ideal
conditions.
