The much sought-after large-scale black and white map of Java by the 18th century French cartographer Abraham Chatelain (1684-1743) and published in Volume V of the Atlas Historique between 1705 and 1720. The map, modelled on Hadrien Reland’s earlier map that was also the source for Gerard van Keulen’s chart of Java published in 1728, was printed as two separate sheets labelled west (Occidentale) and east (Orientale) that are generally joined to make a complete map of the island. The map has an inset of the Port of Batavia and the off-shore islands (The Thousnad Islands) in the south-west corner and contains extensive notes on the history and geography of Java that are included within the borders of the map and along the margins.

A good strong impression with wide margins in excellent condition apart from two 2 cm worm tracks in the upper margin and some paper browning and age-toning along the edges of the map; measures 360 x 803 mm within map boundary.
