Nieuwe wassende Zee Caart van de Noord-Oceaen

Author:
Johannes van Keulen
Country:
Netherlands
Publication year:
1745
 

The biggest and most influential name in the history of Dutch sea-charts was the firm of Van Keulen, founded by Johannes van Keulen, whose earliest collection of charts is reckoned to date from 1680. The business later increased in the hands of his sons and other descendants after his death.
The map spans the North Atlantic and the surrounding countries. The shape of Iceland is probably based on the Joris Carolus type rather than other maps by Van Keulen. The map seems to have been printed as a separate sheet and never incorporated in one of the atlases by Van Keulen.
