Description :An especially rare and beautiful map of Strait Singapore, with exquisite calligraphy and superb detail of Dutch and Portuguese ships in Strait Singapore. It shows only the southern coast of the island (curiously with north-south running in the usual east-west position) and marks Singapore's west coast ,Cust unbekent, unknown coast. It seems Europeans had not circumnavigated the island at this time.
The map records a naval battle between the Dutch and Portuguese, with alphabet letters to code the various ships involved. The battle probably took place in 1603.
A Portuguese galleon, the Santa Catherine (possibly ship D and L on the map) was captured by the Dutch and its cargo sold in Amsterdam for a princely 3.5 million guilders. Depicted are the Dutch ships, Zierickzee, Enkhuysen, Amsterdam and Hollandse Zaan. Singapore named ,Suica Pora,. The map appeared in the Grand Voyages, which is the last part actually issued by de Bry (Parts VII to XII appeared only after his death).
