Late 16th century map showing the outbound and return routes of Cornelis De Houtman’s pioneering voyage to the East Indies between April 1595 and August 1597 that was published in Part III of the 1599 German edition and the 1601 Latin edition of Theodore De Bry’s Petit Voyages. The map covers the whole route from Amsterdam and includes the southern part of England, the coastline of Europe from the Low Countries to Spain, the whole of Southeast Asia including the Indonesian archipelago as far north as the north coast of New Guinea, with Terra Australis Incognita containing the usual array of islands and places (Beach, Maleteur and Loach) derived from Marco Polo’s travels. The map also shows a small portion of the coast of Brazil, the most westerly point of the journey to the east where the sailing ships picked up the strong westerly winds for the journey across the Atlantic and Indian Oceans.
