Rare double hemispherical world map showing the track round the world by Le Maire and Schouten in 1615-1617. Continents are marked in outline and no southern regions are shown.
Above the map are two head-and-shoulder portraits of Ferdinand Magellan and Willem C. Schouten, each flanked by angels bearing laurel wreaths. The borders contain portraits of four other circumnavigators: Francis Drake, Thomas Cavendish, Olivier van Noort and Joris van Spilbergen.
The page is taken from a first edition of Johann Ludwig Gottfried's "Newe Welt Vnd Americanische Historien/ Jnhaltende Warhafftige vnd volkommene Beschreibungen Aller West-Indianischen Landschafften…" published by M.Merian in 1631.

Willem Cornelisz Schouten (1567–1625) and Jacob le Maire (1585-1616) are Dutch mariners who circumnavigated the earth in 1615-1616.

In 1615 they sailed from Texel, in the Netherlands, in command of an expedition sponsored by Isaac Le Maire and his Australische Compagnie. One of the reasons for the voyage was to search for Terra Australis, which eluded them.
A further objective was to evade the trade restrictions of the Dutch East India Company (VOC), by finding a new route to the Pacific and the Spice Islands.
