Description

Nice example of this early state of the Bertius map of the Maldives and part of Ceylon, 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 of the Maldives.

Langenes's 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 .
