Rare unauthorized English Edition Waghenaer's map of the Jutland Coastline.

Oriented with southeast at the top, the map extends from Aalborg and Hals to Skagen at the northern tip of Jutland.

The English map is a copy of the first state of Waghenaer's sea chart of the same region, first published in 1588. Waghenaer's Spiegel was the first engraved sea atlas.

Lucas Janszoon Waghenaer (c. 1533-1606) was a Dutch marine cartographer and navigator. He grew up in the important port of Enkuizen. From 1550-1579 he served at sea, increasing his practical knowledge of sailing and charting. His first publication was the famous Spiegel der Zeevaerdt, or Mariner's Mirror, which appeared in 1584. The work was reprinted and translated into several European languages. The combination of detailed charts accompanied by sailing directions set a precedent and model for subsequent sea atlases, which came to be called waggoners. Waghenaer published two other works, Thresoor der Zeevaert ( Treasure of navigation) in 1592 and the Enchuyser zeecaertboeck (Enkhuizen sea-chart-book) in 1598. He died in 1606.

Originally engraved by Joannes Doetecum, the English edition was engraved by Jodocus Hondius, one of the earliest maps engraved by Hondius.
