Product Description

Antique Map Java by Bertius titled ‘Iava Maior’.

A small hand-coloured very early 17th century map of Java by Petrus Bertius (1565-1629), brother-in-law to both Jodocus Hondius and Pieter van den Keere. The map was originally derived from that of Barent Langenes’ account of Cornelis de Houtman’s expedition to the East Indies published at Middleburg in 1598 in the first edition of the Map Treasury. This version was published in Bertius’ miniature atlas Tabularum geographicarum contractarum …. that was published in Amsterdam in 1600 by Cornelis Claesz. The map was re-issued by the French writer and publisher Constantin De Renneville (1650-1723) who translated Commelin’s Dutch travel accounts as Recueil des Voyages …. Des Indes Orientales …… between 1702 and 1706. The width of Java is greatly exaggerated largely because of the almost total lack of knowledge of the geography of the south coast. Bali is referred to as ‘Balla’, Lombok is ‘Galle’ and Sumbawa is called ‘Iava Menor’, a name that was also used on some 16th century maps for the island of Borneo.
