Henricus Hondius’s map of Southeast Asia

Henricus Hondius's 1636 map of Southeast Asia was based on Willem Blaeu's map from the previous year. Both maps were vast improvements from earlier maps of the region, and present the extent of the trading influence of the Dutch East India Company. This map features a dedication in Latin to the wealthy Dutch merchant Christophoro Thisio.
