Description :Beautiful Southeast Asia map by Mercator-Hondius, in bright original colors. Two beautiful new maps of Southeast Asia were created by the Dutch mapmaker Jodocus Hondius for an enlarged issue of the Mercator Atlas of 1606.
One covered the Indian Ocean region, and the other focused 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.
