1650 Mar di India

Size Guide

High Resolution Image
By: Jan Jansson
Date: 1650 (published) Amsterdam
Original Size: 22 x 17.5 inches (55.9 x 44.5 cm)
This is a fantastic reproduction of an early sea chart of the Indian Ocean showing numerous Dutch discoveries including the partially outlined "Terra Del Zur," present day Australia. New Guinea is shown as a large land mass stretching southeast which later became the northeastern peninsula of Australia. Tasmania has not yet found its way onto the map, and both Japan and India are oddly shaped.
The original map appears to display beautiful old color and is decorated with a distance scale in German miles adorned by five cherubs as well as a title cartouche that includes two natives and what appear to be two Dutch aristocrats. On either side, a compass rose punctuates the sea.
