Coastline profile of Selayar Strait

Laerle, Joris Joostensz.

After spending several months at the Banda islands, the Moluccan fleet of the Fifth Expedition returned to Java in June 1602. On the way they passed through the strait of Selayar, which is depicted here by Joris Joostensz. Laerle in the journal of the Gelderland. The texts above the islands say: “south-southwest”, “Insule desolanime”, “West by south”, “West by north”, “West-northwest”, “Northwest” and “North-northwest”.
