Product Description

DESCRIPAÔ DA ILHA DE JAŰA

An extremely rare early 17th century old colour Portuguese map by Joso do Barros (1496 – 1570) a Portuguese traveller, geographer and historian whose accounts of parts of Asia were used as a source by several cartographers from his Decadas da Asia published in Madrid in 1613. The southern part of Java is defined as “Parte Incongnita Da Jaua” because the southern coast was unexplored. Interesting the entire island is bisected by a river (Cimanuk?); a mistake that appeared in Pieter Vander Aa’s map of Java based on Portuguese sources that was published in 1707.

Very good condition apart from creasing with strong plate marks; measures 281 x 178 mm.

Purchase code: M1745
