Early map of the East Indies from Bengal to the Solomon Islands and north to Japan. Based on the manuscript map of López de Velasco, the earliest map to name all of the major Philippine islands (ca. 1575).
The Philippines and New Guinea are somewhat sketchy, but the many place names are accurately positioned. Includes a numbered key to three major island groups: the Moluccas, the Philippines, and the Ladrones.
From 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.
