A 16th century miniature map of the Cape Verde Islands

LANGENES, Barent.

Insulae Capitis Viridis.
Amsterdam, Cornelis Claez, 1599, Dutch text edition. 85 x 125mm, with letterpress surtitle and pagination.

A scarce map of the Cape Verde Islands, engraved by either Jodocus Hondius or Pieter van den Keere for the 'Caert-Thresoor', with a text by an unknown author. Despite being published only a year after the first edition, this is a second state: the right border has been re-engraved with latitude graduations.
By 1600 this map was being published in the 'Tabularum Geographicarum' with a text by Petrus Bertius, and in 1616 a new plate was engraved by Jodocus Hondius II, slightly larger and with wider borders with scales of longitude and latitude.
