Map of the Arctic. Dutch cartographer and Arctic explorer Willem Barentsz (c.1550-1597). Northern Europe is across bottom, with Greenland at upper left, and northern Russia at right. Sea monsters are shown in the unknown regions round the North Pole. The furthest exploration north at the time had been achieved at Novaya Zemlya (lower right) in June 1596 by a party led by Barentsz who died on the return journey. This map was produced in 1598, with this copy reprinted in 'Materialy po istorii russkoi kartografii' (1899) by Veniamin A. Kordt (1860-1934). Barentsz is named in Latin and Dutch at upper centre. The cartouche at bottom right names the cartographers Cornelius Nicolai and Baptista van Deutecum.
