Antique map of South East Asia by Pierre Mariette
Antique map of South East Asia by Pierre Mariette

Description


Scarce early map of the East Indies, published in Paris around 1650 by Pierre Mariette.

The map is based on the 1636 Henricus Hondius / Janssonius map of the region, which in turn is based on the 1632-1634 Blaeu / Gerritsz map of the area.

The map shows the Dutch landfalls and explorations in both Western Australia as well as Cape York.

All maps by Pierre Mariette are rare.
