    The voyages and discoveries of the Dutch East India Company (VOC) and other Dutch trading companies are the subject of this handsome, double-hemisphere map of the world. California is shown as a prominent island, the Great Wall is shown in China, and the incomplete coasts of Australia and New Zealand are shown in the South Pacific. The tables describe the voyages by Dutch explorers and important events in the Dutch colonies - from 1594 (the first attempt to find a Northeast Passage to Asia) to 1665 when New Holande (New York) was captured by the British. The map is beautifully decorated with ships, a medallion and a female figure seated within an elaborate fortification holding a horn of plenty with a staff topped with a liberty cap, and guarded by a lion representing Holland. First published without the decorative elements around 1670; this is the later edition published by Chatelain.

Our Proxy bidding makes it safe to submit your maximum bid - see "Proxy Bidding" below. You will need to enter your User Name and Password in the next step, unless you have Signed In. You will also have the opportunity in the next step to verify your bid amount before submitting it.

Bid Increments Minimum bid is $550.00 but you may bid any greater amount.
Enter your maximum bid - the Proxy Bidding System will competitively enter your bid. Please note that Proxy bids only work once the reserve value has been met. Any bids placed below (or equal to) the reserve will be entered at face value.

Do not use a comma (,) or a decimal point (.). Use whole numbers only!


Notes:
  • Bids must be entered in bidding increments. Bids that do not correspond to bidding increments will be reduced to the next lower increment.
  • The Buyer's premium of 15% will be added to all winning bids.
Our "Proxy Bidding" service takes the worry out of bidding - here's how it works:

• When you bid, you enter the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the item. Your maximum bid is kept secret from other bidders and the consignor.
• Our system compares your bid to bids by other bidders. The system automatically bids on your behalf, using only as much of your bid as is necessary to maintain your high bid position, or to meet the reserve price. You don't have to closely monitor the auction as it unfolds.
• If another bidder has a higher maximum bid, you will be out bid. At the auction close if you have the highest bid you win the item. You can end up paying less than your maximum bid depending on what other bidders have bid.
• You can raise your maximum bid at anytime. And you will never bid against yourself, just everyone else!

Your bid is a contract - Only place a bid if you're serious about buying the item; if you're the winning bidder, you have entered into a legally binding contract to purchase the item from Old World Auctions.
