Rare early 19th Century example of Joris van Spilbergen's chart of Southern Luzon, Mindoro and Samar Islands, first published in Amsterdam in 1619 and here drawn from the work of James Burney.

James Burney (1750-1821) was a rear admiral, who began his career on the last 2 of Cook's voyages of Circumnavigation.  The map appeared in his Chronological History of the Voyages and Discoveries in the South Sea or Pacific Ocean (London, 1803–1817).
