Nice example of this early state of Barent Langenes, map of New Guinea and the Salomon Islands, etc, which first appeared in the 1598 edition of Langenes Caert-Thresoor, published in Middelburg.

The present map is one of the earliest obtainable maps of the region, with nothing shown along its southern coastline.

Langenes's map was first issued in his Caert-Thresoor and later re-published by Bertius in his Tabularum Geographicarum, beginning in 1600, with the total number of appearances of this map running to no less than 12 between 1598 and 1650 in the two works by Langenes and Bertius.

Condition Description: One wormhole in image. Marginal worm hole.
