Copper plate engraving in sumptuous FULL and original color published in Amsterdam c. 1683.
Prepared by Claes Jansz. Vooght in Mercator projection. Finely engraved nautical chart of the known world at the end of the 17th century showing major ports, countries, capes, estuaries, banks and islands. This is considered the second state of this map as shown by the phrase at the bottom of the cartouche "Met Previlegie voor 15 Iaren", and originally issued in the atlas Zee-Fakel in 1682.
Note that California was still viewed as an island at that time and it is clearly and sharply delineated here. Includes rhumb lines, 2 compass roses and vignettes of ships.

Australian mainland named as "Nova Hollandia" with incomplete coastline shown from "I. S. Pieter" and "I. S. Francoy's" in the Great Australian Bight to "B. van Spult" on the west coast of Cape York Peninsula. Tasmania named as "Anthoni van Diemens Land" with a portion of incomplete coastline shown from "Vander Lyn's Eyl" to "Sweers Eyl". New Zealand named as "Staten Land" with a portion of incomplete coastline shown from "C. Maria van Dimen" to "Klippige hoek".
Rhumb lines, wind compass roses, ships, and the title cartouche are all displayed with a tremendous panache and sense of style. The condition of this chart is sensational.
This is Dutch marine cartography seen at its most uplifting and glorious.
