Product Description

Antique map of the Indian Ocean titled ‘Carte des Indes Orientales’. This rare antique map is one of the earliest French maps to show the 17th century discoveries that occuredin Australia. Moreover, it features it features the explorations of Abel Tasman, derived from his voyages to Australia and New Zealand, from 1642 to 1644. Lands recently encountered by Dutch East India Company (VOC) explorers include the south coast of Tasmania, the west coast of Cape York, and the coast of Arnhem Land. The outlines of the coasts of South and East Asia are very advanced for the time. India, Indochina and the Malaya Peninsula are based on the latest VOC published sea charts, and present a view familiar to the modern observer. The Indonesian Archipelago is generally well formed, although New Guinea takes on a somewhat crude shape. China is shown in fairly assured form and features the depiction of the Great Wall, while Korea is correctly shown to be a peninsula. Japan, south of Hokkaido, is quite accurately represented, with details gleaned by Thevenot from Dutch charts.

This map originates from the atlas ‘Cartes de Geographie les Plus Nouvelles’. Du Val’s map is one of the finest early depictions of the Indian Ocean, and an essential map for collectors in a variety of fields, notably Australia and East Asia.
