M. Frobichers Scheeps Togt, gedann om de Noord, ter ontdekking van een Straat na Cataya en China

Author:
Pieter van der Aa
Country:
Netherlands
Publication year:
1706
 

The map shows the route taken by the English explorer Martin Frobisher when he was trying to find a north-west passage to China. Iceland is only a small part of the map and rather unsightly. Place-names are few and Iceland is given two names, Yslandia and Frisland. On some maps Frisland had for a long time been the name of an island south of the country but now it has been put on Iceland since many thought it was Iceland's double.
The maps shown here are from one of van der Aa's collections of maps and travel accounts and the book Atlas nouveau et curieux (1714).
