Insulae Indiae Orientalis Praecipuae, in quibus Moluccae celeberrimae sunt. - Mercator - Hondius - Janssonius, 1630.
Map of East Indian Archipelago, oriented to the North
Two beautiful new maps of Southeast Asia were created by the Dutch mapmaker Jodocus Hondius for an enlarged issue of the Mercator Atlas of 1606. One covered the Indian Ocean region and the other focused on the islands. Geographically, Hondius largely followed the Bartolomeu Lasso pattern. The Insulae Indiae Orientalis is one of the few maps to show any trace of Francis Drake's presence in Southeast Asia.
