Decorative full color example of Wagenhaer's map of a portion of the Portugese Coastline.

The chart is one of Waghenaer's most decorative productions, with 2 sea monsters, 2 sailing ships, a compass rose, and 2 decorative cartouche, soundings, and anchorages. Profiles of the coastline at the top.

Wagenhaer was a Dutch pilot who produced the first set of effective navigational charts, under the title, Spiegel der Zeevaerdt. These gorgeous charts, engraved by Baptist and Jan van Doetecum, embody the latest contemporary knowledge of navigation and position finding, and set the standard which was followed for more than a century.

Waghenaer's charts are magnificent works of art, which are highly sought after by collectors.
