"A complete map of the Southern Continent surveyed by Captain Abel Tasman (1603-1659 CE) and depicted by order of the East India Company in Holland in the Stadt House at Amsterdam, 1774 CE." The map shows the western mainland of Australia, named New Holland by Tasman, and the eastern mainland. Terra Australis Incognita was the name given to the fabled southern continent long sought after by explorers and now known as Australia.
