This map originates from the second part of the five-volume sea atlas De Nieuwe Groote Lichtende Zee-fakkel (New Shining Sea Torch) from publisher Johannes van Keulen and the mathematician, land surveyor and master of navigation Claes Jansz Vooght. This atlas was first published between 1681 and 1684 and heailvy relied on the maps and charts the Van Keulen family had gathered, copied and purchased from other collections. This map shows the south coast of Morocco and the Canary Islands. In addition to some soundings and decorations at the lower left, it mainly shows ports and coastal settlements.
