Product Description

Antique Map of South-East Asia by Blaeu titled ‘INDIA quae ORIENTALIS dicitur, ET INSVLAE ADIACENTES’.

The famous and much sought-after early to mid-17th century map of South-east Asia by the great Dutch cartographer William (Guiljelmus) Blaeu (1571-1638) first published in the two-volume Nieuwe Atlas in 1635. The map contains a dedication to Laurens Reael, VOC Director in Amsterdam and former Governor General in Asia, who was a personal; friend of Blaeu’s and who probably helped Blaeu obtain the copper plates from the VOC Directors for the new two-volume 1635 atlas. This map has no text on the back (verso). Apart from the Appendix of 1630, the majority of Blaeu maps from his atlases have text in various languages on the verso. A few rare Blaeu atlases have appeared without text. Although this map is without text it is much more likely to be derived from a collection of maps reprinted from the Blaeu plates after they were sold c. 1674 and published by various authors in the atlases of Covens and Mortier and Ottens in the early 18th century than be from on the rare atlases published without text.
