This is a fantastic early sea chart of the Indian Ocean showing numerous Dutch discoveries including the partially outlined "Terra Del Zur," present day Australia. New Guinea is shown as a large land mass stretching southeast which later became the northeastern peninsula of Australia. Tasmania has not yet found its way onto the map, and both Japan and India are oddly shaped.

Map appears to display beautiful old color and is decorated with a distance scale in German miles adorned by five cherubs as well as a title cartouche that includes two natives and what appear to be two Dutch aristocrats. On either side, a compass rose punctuates the sea.

Condition: Map is in A+ condition with magnificent color on heavy paper.
