Also there is one of the world according to Mercator’s projection, with improvements, showing the northern coast line and part of the west and south coasts of Australia together with parts of Tasmania and New Zealand. Among voyages included are those of Magellan, Drake, Cavendish, Schouten, Hawkins, Narbrough, and Dampier.” (Hill)
