Java Island by Gerard van Keulen c. 1753

INSULAE IAVAE PARS OCCIDENTALIS EDENTE HADRIANO RELANDO/INSULAE IAVAE PARS ORIENTALIS EDENTE HADRIANO RELANDO/t’Amfterdam by GERARD van KEULEN/aan de Nieuwe brug met Privilegie

The very rare and much sought-after second state hand coloured sea charts of east and west Java by Gerard van Keulen from Part VI of the Zee-Fakkel, the beautiful Dutch pilot-guide to navigation in the East Indies and the Malay Archipelago was issued by van Keulen in 1753 with 73 charts of Asian waters including the two charts of Java. Part VI was an updated version of the Zee-Fakkel Part V of his 1728 edition, often called the VOC’s Secret Atlas, which also contained the two charts but without the small inset chart of Batavia Roads on the western sheet and a coastal profile of Batavia and the Bogor Mountains from Batavia Roads on the eastern sheet. The two charts, which contain hundreds of depth soundings, were usually joined to make one map of the whole of Java. The van Keulen family operated a chart-making and publishing firm in Amsterdam for nearly 200 years.

The two sheets have been professionally restored with some infilling of small holes and torn bottom edges reinstalled, a rejoined section in the left of the left-hand sheet has been strengthened and both sheets are backed with ‘Japan’ paper; measures 515 x 594 and 515 x 603 mm respectively.
