Strait of Magellan. Strait of Magellan with the South American mainland (to the north) at bottom and Tierra del Fuego (to the south) at top. The strait is named for Ferdinand Magellan who navigated it in 1520 on his voyage around the world. The text and labels are in Latin and Dutch, with a panorama at lower left and sailing ships in the Pacific (Mar del Sur, right) and Atlantic (Mar del Norte, left). The numbers in the strait are sounding readings. This map, published in Amsterdam in 1611 by Dutch cartographer Jodocus Hondius (1563-1612), is from Mercator's 'Atlas sive Cosmographicae', based on a 1570 map by Ortelius.
