Description :Uncommon map of part of the coast along the Barents Sea with the island of Kilduyn, offshore of the river near the town of Cola (Murmansk). Made to illustrate Willem Barentz. first arctic voyage. The Dutch were engaged in searching for the most efficient sea route to the East Indies, including a North-East Passage to the north of Russia.
For his first voyage Barentsz left the island of Texel aboard the ship Mercury on 5 June 1594 as part of a group of three ships sent out in separate directions to try and enter the Kara Sea, with the hopes of finding the Northeast passage above Siberia.
In July 1594 he reached the island Kilduyn. Even though this map is much smaller than an atlas map from Blaeu, Hondius or Ortelius, it is still a highly detailed and delightful map, and often the first one of its region. From the description of the first expedition of the Dutch to the East Indies by Pontanus: 'Rerum et urbis Amstelodamensium historia'.

Condition : Condition of the map is good. Copper engraving with letterpress. Size of page 195 x 300 mm.
