SCHENK, Pieter & VALCK, Gerard
Sinus Gangeticus vulgo Golfo de Bengala
[Bay of Bengal]
The style of this beautiful map and its decorative cartouche are very like Jansson and suggest this is one of the maps that Schenk and Valck reissued from Jansson’s Atlas Novus. North faces to the right. The Bay of Bengal is decorated with compasses and ships at full sail. The scale at top left in German and French miles has its own decorated cartouche
