Physical Description: 1 ms. map : col. ; 57.0 x 96.8 cm.
Notes: Map of the coast of Western Australia originally sketched by Willem de Vlamingh in 1697 stretching from Kalbarri north to Vlaming Head on North West Cape. Block of text describes various topographic features on the map where Vlamingh landed as well as general observations. Decorative features include rhumb lines and two coloured compass roses. Relief is shown pictorially and depth shown by bathymetric soundings. After Vlamingh's fleet arrived back in Batavia, Victor Victorszoon was commissioned to redraw Vlamingh's journal sketches which included the chart of the western coastline of the Great South Land. This reproduction was to be stored away in the archives of the Dutch East Indies Company (VOC) until Gerard van Keulen obtained access and copied it retaining much of its original detail though the layout was altered, decorative features reduced and the text mentioning Rottnest Island omitted.

Examined by Gunter Schilder and attributed to Gerard van Keulen in Gunter Schilder's Voyage to the Great South Land, Willem de Vlamingh, 1696-1697 (Sydney : Royal Australian Historical Society in association with the Australian Bank, 1985), p. 95.

Includes text in the upper part of the map.

Considered by Schilder [p. 94-95] to be issued as a ms. map included amongst 74 printed maps from an undated issue of an atlas entitled: Nieuwe groote lichtende zeefakkel. Amsterdam : Gerard van Keulen.
