"Insulae Indiae Orientalis"
Published by Hondius, 1606
Henricus Hondius originally published this beautifully colored and detailed image in 1606. This superior reproduction of the original chart illustrates parts of the Asian continent and Indonesia including China, Sumatra, Borneo and the Philippines in the classic Dutch Baroque style.
Also of note are the very ornate title cartouche, the detailed compass rose, and the illustrations of sailing ships that are trademarks of the Hondius map and publishing house.
