Naming Sincapura

Nice example Bertius's map of Sumatra and southern Malaysia (including Singapore), which first appeared in the 1598 edition of Langenes's Caert-Thresoor, published in Middelburg.

The present map is one of the earliest obtainable maps to focus on the Straits of Malacca and one of the earliest works engraved by Benjamin Wright.

The map was first issued in his Caert-Thresoor and later re-published in by Bertius in his Tabularum Geographicarum, beginning in 1600, with the total number of appearances of this map running to no less than 12 appearances between 1598 and 1650 in the two works by Langenes and Bertius.
