Description

Nice example of this early state of Petrus Bertius's map of the Straits of Hormuz, which first appeared in the 1598 edition of Langenes's Caert-Thresoor, published in Middelburg.

Catiff, I. Baraem, Sunaim and Catura iare shown.. Curiously few place names are shown in the area of Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

Langenes's map was first issued in his Caert-Thresoor and later re-published 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 .
