This small copper engraved map illustrates the voyages of Sebald de Weert and Olivier van Noordt through the Straits of Magellen in 1598. It features renderings of the native inhabitants taken from the illustrations to De Weert’s voyage and an interesting depiction of a penguin and a giant snail. The map is further adorned with a compass rose orienting the map with south at the top, and two strapwork cartouches.
