1635 HONDIUS DUTCH MAP PATAGONIA CHILE MAGELLAN STRAITS
1635 HONDIUS DUTCH MAP PATAGONIA CHILE MAGELLAN STRAITS
This is a very decorative map of the Magellan Strait, from the golden age of Dutch cartography, the seventeenth century, by Jodocus Hondius. Map correctly presents Cape Horn as an island, following the 1624 confirmation by fellow countryman, Admiral Jacques L’Hermite (1582–1624). Moreover, Hondius shows how the northwestern peninsula of Tierra del Fuego breaks up into islands; here, also, the slanting of the territory begins to mirror the true shape of the land. Map contains note about the existence of Patagonian Giants, 1635. From map: “Freti Magellanici ac novi freti vulgo Le Maire exactissima delineatio.” Amsterdam, 1635.
