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.

Willem Cornelisz Schouten (15671625) was the first to sail the Cape Horn route to the Pacific Ocean. Jacob le Maire (1585-1616) was a Dutch mariner who circumnavigated the earth in 1615-1616.
In 1615, Willem Cornelisz Schouten and Jacob le Maire sailed from Texel, in the Netherlands, in command of an expedition sponsored by Isaac Le Maire and his Australische Compagnie in equal shares with Schouten. 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.
