Description

Antique Map South-East Asia by Hondius titled ‘INDIA quae ORIENTALIS dicitur, et INSVLAE ADIACENTES’.

A very attractive and much sought after early to mid-17th century black and white map of South-east Asia, the Philippines, the East Indian Islands (Indonesia) and the west coast of Cape York Peninsula, Australia by Henri (Henricus) Hondius (1597-1651), younger son of the great Dutch cartographer Jodocus Hondius the Elder (1563-1612),  who continued his father’s business and worked in partnership with his borther-in-law, Johannes Janssonius to produce and publish the Atlas Novus in 1636 (Signature Bbbb – Ref. Koeman Vol. II, Me 50A, pp. 396). This map was a new one of the region that was dedicated to D. Christophorus Thisius and is one of the first maps to show the Dutch discoveries along the west coast of Cape York Peninsula (later named Carpentaria) and the most northerly discoveries on the west coast of Australia, G.F. de Wit’s Land and Eendrachtland. Hondius and Jansson almost certainly borrowed material from their arch rival William Blaeu who had published an almost identical map a year earlier (1635) in Volume I of his Novus Atlas.

The overall condition of the map is very good; Latin text on verso; measures 392 x 484 mm.

Artist: H. Hondius

Artists and Engravers: Willem Janszoon Blaeu (1571-1638) was a prominent Dutch geographer and publisher. Born the son of a herring merchant, Blaeu chose not fish but mathematics and astronomy for his focus. He studied with the famous Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe, with whom he honed his instrument and globe making skills. Blaeu set up shop in Amsterdam, where he sold instruments and globes, published maps, and edited the works of intellectuals like Descartes and Hugo Grotius. In 1635, he released his atlas, Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, sive, Atlas novus. Willem died in 1638. He had two sons, Cornelis (1610-1648) and Joan (1596-1673). Joan trained as a lawyer, but joined his father’s business rather than practice. After his father’s death, the brothers took over their father’s shop and Joan took on his work as hydrographer to the Dutch East India Company. Later in life, Joan would modify and greatly expand his father’s Atlas novus, eventually releasing his masterpiece, the Atlas maior, between 1662 and 1672.
