Covering nearly all of North America and a good deal of South America. Destroit d'Anian to north. Agabela de Gato is a less pronounced peninsula than seen on other maps.

This large scale chart of the Pacific appeared in Mortier's lavish Neptune Francois, which Koeman calls the most expensive sea atlas ever published in Amsterdam in the 17th century. Its charts are larger and more lavishly decorated than those of any preceding book of its kind.
In 1700, Mortier expanded his atlas with the Suite du Neptune François, a group of maps copied by d'Ablancourt from important manuscript maps collected by the Portuguese crown, including this chart of the Pacific.
The appearance of Dutch maps based on Spanish or Portuguese sources was rare, as both countries were notorious for secreting away their geographical knowledge.
