This handsome small map was derived from the Nicolas Visscher map of 1658, with a Blaeu type Great Lakes region and a Briggs type island of California. A depiction of the discoveries of the De Vries voyage appears in the water north of Japan, and Tasman's discoveries are shown in New Zealand. This is the first state of the map, decorated by a simple drape style title cartouche without engraver's imprint.
