Title: De Persia an ze zee met d'Eylanden ... / Diego Lopez de Sequeira
Engraver: De Fer. Nicholas

A map showing the area around the Arabian Sea dedicated to Diego Lopez de Sequira, a Portuguese navigator, Governor of Portuguese India 1518-1522 and the first European to reach Malacca (Melaka) in 1509.
This map was found in a decrepit state, the paper being brown and fragile and with a number of wormholes (although in the most part they do not affect the text). The map has been fully retored (cleaned/de-acidified/pressed) and placed on Japan paper.
