Description:

Magnificent Dutch sea chart published in Goos&#8217s De Zee Atlasofte Water-Weereld in 1666 with north orientated to the left and Australia shown with the Dutch discoveries up to Tasman&#8217s second voyage of 1644, but excluding his first voyage discoveries due to the geographical limits of the map. Elegantly embellished with a decorative title that includes scroll work, putti, three galleons, rosettes and a scale of distances. A number of mapmakers made near identical charts using the same orientation, the first being van Loon which was issued in his 1661 Klaer Lichtende Noort-Ster Ofte Zee Atlas , followed by Doncker 1669, Seller 1670 and de Wit 1675. Its intended use as a sea chart is borne by the extensive use of rhumb lines and compass points. 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. Goos&#8217s charts were often used by mariners at sea which led to many being either degraded or destroyed due to the less than ideal conditions. The characteristic feature of Dutch charts produced in the second half of the seventeenth century is that they were based solely on the results of actual observation and where that was lacking, no coastlines were shown.
