De Straat Sunda, in de Ooft-Indifche Zee Tuffen de Eylanden Sumatra en Iava. / tot Amsterdam by Gerard van Keulen, Boek en Zeekaart verkooper aan de Nieuwe brugh met Previlegie voor 15 Jaaren.

Extremely rare collector’s chart that was published exclusively in the secret atlas of the VOC (Dutch East India Company), this secret atlas was created for internal use only.

This chart is hardly ever on the market, and no doubt one of the very best and most detailed early charts of the East Indies region.

Gerard van Keulen (1678-1726), engraver, mathematician and chart-maker in Amsterdam, son of Johannes van Keulen. In 1704 he took control if the company and built up a high reputation for the quality of Keulen navigation charts. Appointed Hydrographer to the VOC ( Dutch East India Company ), in 1714. Revised, augmented and re-issued his father’s atlases, adding many of his own charts.
