Dimensions: 11 x 14 inches (27.9 cm x 35.6 cm)

This fine authentic antique map by Joannes De Laet, one of the founding fathers of the Dutch West Indies Company, shows a well-detailed coastline of Venezuela but little of the interior, and only a rudimentary depiction of the Lesser Antilles.

This is another of the maps of Hessel Gerritaz, an early and important Dutch cartographer of the 17th century, whose maps were published by De Laet, one of the founders of the Dutch East India Company. Thanks to De Laet the maps of Gerritaz, which were primarily in manuscript form only, are available to collectors today.

The title cartouche is modest but fanciful, and the map is further embellished by a compass rose and a banner containing three distance scales, in English, Dutch and Spanish.

Condition: This map is in B+ condition. Two rust spots. Full borders with toning.
