    This is an image of Nova totius Terrarum Orbis geographica ac hydrographica tabula, a map of the world created by Hendrik Hondius in 1630, and published the following year in the atlas Atlantis Maioris Appendix.

    Among its claims to notability is the fact that it was the first dated map published in an atlas, and therefore the first widely available map, to show any part of Australia, the only previous map to do so being Hessel Gerritsz' 1627 Caert van't Landt van d'Eendracht ("Chart of the Land of Eendracht"), which was not widely distributed.

    The Australian coastline shown is part of the west coast of Cape York Peninsula, discovered by Jan Carstensz in 1623. Curiously, the map does not show the west coast features shown in Gerritsz' Caert.

    Date The original map was executed in 1630, and published in 1631.
    Source This is a scan of the copy belonging to the State Library of New South Wales. Access to it was available at New South Wales. The graphical user interface provided does not support downloading the full image at full resolution, but the back end could be cajoled to do so by manually editing the CGI arguments in the url, to NSW².
