Tasman’s Kaart – van Zijn Australische Ontdekkingen 1644 – Dr F.C. Wielder

Short Description

The landmark book by distinguished cartographic expert Dr F.C. Wielder. Published by Martinus Nijhoff, the Hague, Holland in 1942.

A full study of the cartography stemming from the Tasman voyages. Without the large folding Bonaparte map as nearly always. Notwithstanding that, there are nineteen maps and coastal views reproduced, some double page and one double page with fold-out.

Published in Dutch with a minimal amount of English content … the cartographically inclined can follow the gist without language knowledge … but it obviously helps!

Large quarto, 140 pages, original blue cloth covered boards with paper label. Some age to the exterior, internally very good.

References maps include those from Gerritsz, Tasman’s Journal, Jacobsen, Gilesmans, Vingboons and of course Thevenot … the first near full map devoted to Australia.

Fundamental work on Tasman’s charting downunder

Price: $90.00
