[Untitled Map -- Double Hemisphere Map with Portraits of Magellan, Schoten, Drake, Von Noort, Cavendish, and Speilbergen

Double hemisphere map of the World, accompanied by portraits of a number of the most important 16th and early 17th Century explorers, which was included in Willem J. Schouten's America Pars Undecima . . . , first published by De Bry in 161.

The map shows the tracks of Jacob Le Maire and Willem Schouten's circumnavigation (1615-1617), which included the discovery of a passage to the south of the Straits of Magellan and the discovery of Staten Island.

A nice example of this scarce map.

Theodor de Bry (1528-1598) was a prominent Flemish engraver and publisher best known for his engravings of the New World. Born in Liege, de Bry hailed from the portion of Flanders then controlled by Spain. The de Brys were a family of jewelers and engravers, and young Theodor was trained in those artisanal trades.

As a Lutheran, however, his life and livelihood was threatened when the Spanish Inquisition cracked down on non-Catholics. De Bry was banished and his goods seized in 1570. He fled to Strasbourg, where he studied under the Huguenot engraver Etienne Delaune. He also traveled to Antwerp, London, and Frankfurt, where he settled with his family.

In 1590, de Bry began to publish his Les Grands Voyages, which would eventually stretch to thirty volumes released by de Bry and his two sons. The volumes contained not only important engraved images of the New World, the first many had seen of the geographic novelties, but also several important maps. He also published a collection focus on India Orientalis. Les Grands Voyages was published in German, Latin, French, and English, extending de Bry’s fame and his view of the New World.
