Description: Antique map titled 'De Noord Pool waar in aangetoont werd alle de Nieuwe Landen (..) - De Eilanden van Sangir Sjauw en Pangasare (..)'. Interesting map that includes a map of the North Pole featuring the island of California with a narrow isthmus near the center of its eastern coast, and a faint coastline labeled, Onbekend Land, nearly connecting Asia and North America. A second map that takes up nearly a third of the sheet covers the volcanic islands of the Sangihe Archipelago in Indonesia. This map originates from 'Nieuwe Natuur- Geschied- en Handelkundige Zak- en Reisatlas' by Gerrit Brender à Brandis.

Artists and Engravers: Published by J. Keizer and I. de Lat, 1788.
