Description:

Nice old color example of Pieter Goos' sea chart of Australia, Southeast Asia, China, Japan, Korea and India. First published in Goos’ Zee Atlas.

The chart is the second of two charts encompassing the sea routes from Southern Africa to the Far East, as typically followed by ships of the Dutch East India Company in this period. As the second and easternmost sheet, the chart shows the regions from Cape Comorin (Southern India) to Japan. The discoveries made by Tasman in Northern Australia in 1644 during the course of his second voyage are included. Three Dutch galleons appear in the lower right corner of the map. Decorative title cartouche in lower left surmounted by winged putti and cherubs. Goos’ map served as a prototype, both in its detail and orientation (with East at the top of the sheet) for many subsequent Dutch charts of the late 17th and early 18th Century. The chart also served to propagate knowledge of Tasman’s recent Australian discoveries more widely.


Condition Description: Old Color. Trimmed to neat line at top margin, with minor loss of printed image.
