Charming little world map showing the Dutch commercial interests in the East and West Indies. The map combines several cartographic myths including the ISLAND OF CALIFORNIA, the great southern landmass, here labeled 'Laender des Sud Pols', and 'Compagnie Land' situated between Asia and North America. Two ships decorate the map at the top of columns of Dutch text at sides. Within the map the trade routes to and from the East and West Indies are traced.
