A beautiful new map of Southeast Asia created by the Dutch mapmaker Jodocus Hondius for an enlarged issue of the Mercator Atlas of 1606. Focusing on the islands. Geographically, Hondius largely followed the Bartolomeu Lasso pattern. Hondius adds however, a bit from his own notebook.
The Insulae Indiae Orientalis is one of few maps to show any trace of Francis Drake's presence in Southeast Asia. Drake is the first European known to have made landfall on the southern coast of Java. Hondius notes this important event on the Insulae Indiae Orientalis.
