World. Theodore de Bry, [World] Historische Beschreibung/ der Wunderbarlichen Reyse/ Welche von Einem Hollander. Willhelm Schouten Genandt..., from Grand Voyages, 1619 (dated). Hand Color. This is De Bry's version of Willem Schouten's map showing his voyage around the world in 1615-17. This expedition discovered Le Maire Strait and a new route around South America to the Pacific and the important Spice Islands. The simple double hemisphere depicts the vessel's tracks with the continents shown in outline only. Above the map are two, head-and-shoulder, portraits of Ferdinand Magellan and Willem Schouten, each flanked by angels bearing laurel wreaths. Outside this central scene are the portraits of four other circumnavigators: Francis Drake, Thomas Cavendish, Oliver van Noort and George van Spilbergen. The map is on a full sheet of German text (8.8 x 12.5") and is from the German-text edition of De Bry's America.
