Title : West-Indische Paskaert waer in de graden der breedde over weder zijden vande middellijn wassende so vergrooten dat die geproportioneert sijn tegen hunne nevenstaende graden de lengde..
Map maker : GOOS, P. / VAN KEULEN, J..
Date : Amsterdam, 1680.
Size : 16.1 x 38.9 inches. / 41.0 x 98.7 cm.
Colouring : Original colours.

Description :This is the second state of Goos' version of the West Indische Paskaert published by Johannes Van Keulen, first published circa 1680.

This second state was issued both as a wall map and bound into Van Keulen's sea atlases. The present chart being the central section, with the section above and below slightly overlapping into the present chart.
The chart is the so-called "Over zijler" and would give a general overview of the route between the coasts of America and Africa, supplemented by regional charts of the coastal waters of America and Africa.

The chart is derived from Blaeu's monumental West India Paskaert, first issued in 1630. Blaeu's sea chart has been called a "scientific and artistic document of the first order, marking an important date in the history of nautical cartography and one of the most important contributions that the Lowlands produced in the XVII century“ (Destombes & Gernez). Blaeu's chart was the first general chart of American waters that was actually useful for navigation.
There are two states of the Goos map, the second having been issued by Johannes Van Keulen. The Van Keulen edition is readily distinguishable based upon the inclusion of the navigational notes off the west coast of Africa and just above the equator, lettered A through G, with the words "Waage Weg" between.

The chart includes Virginia, Florida and the Gulf Coast in the west to the western part of Africa, extending south to Angola in Africa and Brazil in South America.
The two overlapping companion charts on the adjoining pages in the atlas would have shown the region directly above and below this chart, all engraved from the same massive copper plate.
