  Looks to be a leaf from Novus Orbis Sive Description Indiae Occidentalis.By Antonio de HERRERA Y TORDESILLAS,  (1559-1625).Published by Amsterdam: Michel Colin, 1622., The books consisted of  the first (Herrera's "Indiae Occidentalis.") and second (Jacob Le Maire's "Historia Navigationis Australis") parts of the book are concerned with the New World,`The second volume details  the Pacific island groups and New Guinea, in search of Terra Australis between 1615 and 1617. Le Maire's was the last of the 17th-century expeditions to search for the unknown continent from the east, and in addition to showing that New Guinea was indeed an island and not the western most edge of the imaginary continent, his discovery of and voyage around Cape Horn relieved the trading monopoly of the East India Company by finding an alternative route to the East Indies which did not violate the Company Charter which prevented other Dutch trading companies from using the existing routes of the Straits of Magellan and Cape Hope. ** This is presumed not to be Oz of course but without the book to identify further needs a scholar** Definitely seventeenth century  in Latin £95 soft crease full page
