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.

Two decorative compass roses are shown in this important and highly decorative map.
