Description

Old color example of Johannes De Ram's extremely rare map of the region from the north coast of Australia, and Japan in the East to the Indian Ocean.

The map is noteworthy for its exceptional treatment of the discoveries of Abel Tasman during his two voyages in the region from 1642 to 1644, which resulted in the discovery of Tasmania (Antoni van Diemen's landt) among other highly important discoveries in the region.

While similar to the maps of De Wit and Visscher, there are in fact significant differences. The major place names include parallel "guidelines", which suggests that this may have been a proof state of the map.

The map is extremely rare. We cannot locate another example of the map on the market in the past 30 years.
