NOVA ZEMBLA, Johannes van Keulen (1680)Johannes van Keulen (1654-1715) published this map of Nova Zembla about 1680 in a nautical atlas. Contemporary map users were intrigued by a map of the island in the Arctic Ocean because of the remembrance of the rigorous of the arctic winter suffered by the first Dutch arctic explorer Willem Barendtsz (c. 1550-1597). During his last visit to the island in 1597 Barendtsz got stuck in the ice and, while he was unprepared, he and his crew had to stay the winter in Nova Zembla.
