Exquisite map of the famous Spice Islands based on the islands described by Jan Huyghen van Linschoten. This map was the first large scale map of the region and depicts the islands which provided first the Portuguese, and then the Dutch with a monopoly on the lucrative spice trade. Each of the islands is shown with groves of the prized clove and nutmeg trees and the location of their protective fortresses.

Originated by Jodocus Hondius, the plate was purchased by Blaeu in 1629, and later used by Schenk and Valk.
Very decorative title cartouche and a cartouche enclosing the scale. Other decorations include 2 compass roses, various types of sailing ships, and sea monsters.
