Mar del zvr hispanis mare pacificum

Description

This map highlights the fact that after 150 years of European exploration of the West, explorers had reached and mapped in great detail the Pacific world. The map of the Pacific Ocean includes great detail of the many islands and lands in the Pacific Ocean, which was much larger and more difficult to navigate than the Atlantic. This image is one of the first charts of the Pacific to show California as an island and the earliest sea chart of the Pacific to appear in a Dutch atlas.
