Product Description

Antique Map East Indies by Kitchin titled ‘A MAP of the EAST INDIA ISLANDS, agreeable to the most approved MAPS and CHARTS, By Mr. Kitchen’.

A late 18th century English map of the East Indies and Southeast Asia in good modern colour by Thomas Kitchin (1719-1784) or “Kitchen” as on this map. Kitchin who was apprecticed to the great 18th century English mapmaker Emanuel Bowen (1694-1767) and married his daughter, was a prolific English mapmaker of the late eighteenth century and his maps, including this one, were used for George Henry Millar’s popular New Complete Universal System of Geography published by Alexander Hogg (fl. 1788-1805) in London in  1782. Much detail is given, compiled from the best sources available in London at the time. Asia, though better known than in earlier time, was still a generally mysterious continent to Europeans.
