Hendrick Willem Van Loon was a author, artist and illustrator with a heart toward education. He did a number of interesting thematic maps that looked at history and geography, this world map being one that tackles the subject at a basic level of showing notable explorers routes. Starting with the "Unknown Asiatics Discover Polynesia", to the Phoenicians and Greeks, to Marco Polo and Captain Cook, ending with "Amundsen Makes The North Western Passage 1906". Complimented by vignettes of Arab explorers and Dutch traders.
