Polus Antarcticus, Hendrik Hondius, Amsterdam, 16571657

by Hendrik Hondius
Transcript: 

From Hendrik Hondius's plate (originally published in 1637), this map was regularly revised and reissued. This version is from Jansson's Grooten Atlas and is one of the earliest printed maps to show Abel Tasman's discoveries; that of the western coastline of New Holland, 'Nova Hollandia detect Anno 1644', the southern tip of Van Dieman's Land and an edge of New Zealand.
