此例是在荷兰黄金时代初期绘制的巨幅的精美世界挂图, 1604年由特谢拉和弗里恩特斯制作出版。

 

此例以1592年绘制的世界挂图为基础,被认为是荷兰制图学的一个里程碑,也是世界上第一个在北欧出版的大型挂图

 

特别值得注意的是图中对地球“南部大陆”的描绘,人们相信,为了平衡地球,南半球一定要有一个与北方相称的陆地,造就了伟大的南方大陆的传说。也许是此传说导致了荷兰在17世纪对澳大利亚的探险,以及詹姆斯·库克船长在100年后的航行。

 

这个时代的荷兰世界挂图极为罕见。 由于17世纪初的对于世界新发现,许多地图很快就失去了价值,人们用新地图替换过时的地图, 导致世界挂图现今变的极其稀有珍贵。

A spectacular wall map of astonishing beauty made at the beginning of the Dutch Golden Age.

 

The present map draws on the cartography of Luis Teixeira (fl.1564-1613) - whose name appears in the large pasted title - a Portuguese cartographer from a famous mapmaking dynasty, highly respected in Amsterdam. The map is based upon a simple cylindrical projection and follows very closely the 1592 wall map drawn by Petrus Plancius, “a milestone in the emergence of Dutch cartography [and] the first large wall map of the world to be published in the north” (Schilder).

 

The map is noteworthy for its portrayal of a vast southern continent, and its depiction of the Southern Pacific at the dawn of Dutch exploration of southeast Asia and Australasia. The myth of the Great Southern Continent was propagated by the belief that, in order to balance the earth, there must be a landmass in the southern hemisphere of a size commensurate with that in the north. It was, in part, this erroneous assumption that spurred Dutch exploration of Australia in the seventeenth century, and Captain Cook’s voyages over 100 years later.

 

Dutch world wall maps from this era are incredibly rare. The present work is only the second surviving complete example of the Teixeira/Vrient map of 1604.
