Description :Portrait of Jacques Le Maire. Frontispiece to the first French text edition of Antonio de Herrera y Tordesillas Description des Indes Occidentales Qu'on appelle aujourdhuy Le Nouveau Monde.
Le Maire is holding a map of Le Maire Strait (Estrecho de le Maire), a sea passage between Isla de los Estados and the eastern extremity of the Argentine portion of Tierra del Fuego.

Willem Cornelisz Schouten (1567–1625) and Jacob le Maire (1585-1616) are Dutch mariner who circumnavigated the earth in 1615-1616.
In 1615 they sailed from Texel, in the Netherlands, in command of an expedition sponsored by Isaac Le Maire and his Australische Compagnie. One of the reasons for the voyage was to search for Terra Australis, which eluded them.
A further objective was to evade the trade restrictions of the Dutch East India Company (VOC), by finding a new route to the Pacific and the Spice Islands.

From a decription of the voyage of Le Maire and Schouten included in first French text edition of Antonio de Herrera y Tordesillas Description des Indes Occidentales Qu'on appelle aujourdhuy Le Nouveau Monde. .

Herrera served as the official historian of the King of Spain, and he produced a substantial history of the West Indies, Central and South America. Originally published in 1601 in Madrid, it was reissued later in several editions and languages. Of greatest importance was the 1622 Amsterdam reissuance.
