1600 MATTHIAS MAP PATAGONIA ANTARCTICA CHILE MAGELLAN STRAITS
This map shows two different projections. (This is a copy of Corneille Wytfliet’s map of 1597, which appeared in his Descriptionis Ptolemaicae augmentum, but adds a key to the lower map.) The top map, in a flat projection, shows the Strait of Magellan dividing Patagonia from Terra Australis, or the unknown southern land. (See the Terra Australis box in the Pacific Ocean section.) Victoria, Ferdinand Magellan’s ship, is sailing toward it. The bottom map shows Terra Australis, on a polar projection, with four peninsulas: one facing Patagonia (the subject of the upper map), one opposite Africa’s southern point, one below Java, and one confronting New Guinea. These peninsulas, and the mountains and rivers portrayed on the continent, are mere conjecture. The seven-point key on the left offers possible sources. The Solomon Islands, first discovered in 1568 by the Spanish explorer Alvaro de Mendaña de Neira (1542?–95) and then lost for two hundred years, figure prominently in this map’s ocean and are correctly located next to New Guinea.

1635 BLAEU 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 Willem Janszoon Blaeu. Map continues the idea that Cape Horn is the promontory of a cape. Map is notable for its scale, which illustrates how, with Mercator’s projection, distances increase toward the poles. Several Fuegians, naked or scantily dressed, stand next to it, reflecting what explorers had reported with both shock and surprise—that the natives of the territory appear comfortable in frigid weather with nothing on. To his credit, Blaeu has deleted any reference to Patagonian giants, while other maps from the period still claimed they existed. From map: “Freti Magellanici ac novi freti vulgo Le Maire exactissima delineatio.” Amsterdam, 1635.

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.
