Product Description

Antique Map Java by Van Keulen titled ‘INSULAE IAVAE PARS ORIENTALIS EDENTE HADRIANO RELANDO’.

JAVA SEA CHART  ~ 1728

Extremely rare original sea chart of Java by Gerard van Keulen from Part V of his 1728 edition of the Zee-Fakkel, the beautiful Dutch pilot-guide to navigation in the East Indies and the Malay Archipelago. The chart which contains hundreds of depth soundings were originally part of the so-called secret atlas of the VOC.

During the period 1726-1755 when Johannes van Keulen II was in office as hydrographer of the VOC, the first charts for the navigation of the East Indies and the Malaysian archipelago were engraved. They mark what was to become the pilot guide for the East Indies. Gradually, when a policy of secrecy was no longer of use because English and French charts of Asian waters had already appeared in print, more Dutch charts were published. Finally, in 1753, Johannes van Keulen II issued the entire set at the Part VI of Zee-Fakkel considered by many to be the most beautiful pilot-guide ever published in Amsterdam.
