Spice Islands, North Moluccas, c.1640

Insularum Moluccarum Nova Descriptio, Archipelago de St. Lazaro, Gilolo Insula, by Johannes Janssonius.

An attractive map of the clove producing Islands (Spice Islands) of the North Moluccas and the west coast of Gilolo Islands, present day Halmahera.

The map features a Moluccan couple in the lower right corner in Europeanized native dress. Indicative of the area’s commercial importance, Janssonius has filled the seas with both Dutch VOC sailing vessels, local ships and sea monsters. Two decorative compass roses are shown in this important and highly decorative map.

Johannes Janssonius (1588, Arnhem – buried July 11, 1664, Amsterdam) (born Jan Janszoon) was a Dutch cartographer and publisher who lived and worked in Amsterdam in the 17th century.

Very good condition, some light water stains on the the top. 38,6 x 50.3 cm, (plate).
