Product Description

Antique Map South East Asia by Janssonius titled ‘INSULARUM INDIAE ORIENTALIS Nova Defcriptio’. The much sought after early to mid-17th century map of Indonesia and South-east Asia in original colour by the famous Dutch cartographer Jan Jansson that was published between 1696 and 1719 by Gerard Valk (1652–1726) and Pieter (Petrus) Schenk (1661-1711) who began working together as engravers, publishers and map sellers around 1680. They acquired the copper plates of Johannes Janssonius’ (Jan Jansson) Atlas Novus in 1694, removed Jansson’s name from the map, added their own and published new editions of the atlas under the name Atlas Contractus from 1696 until 1719. The geography of the map remained unchanged from that of the first edition published by Jansson in 1630, when it was the most accurate as well as being one of the most elegant 17th century maps of the East Indian Islands and included one of the first inferences to the discoveries made on the northwestern coast of Australia in 1606 by William Jansz in the ship Duyfken. On the south coast of New Guinea the name ‘Duyfkens Eylant’ appears, thereby immortalizing the name of the ship by which Australia had been discovered in 1606.
