Description

Antique map titled ‘A New Map of the East Indies’. Old map covering all of Southeast Asia from Persia to the Timor Island, inclusive of the modern day nations of India, Ceylon, Thailand, Burma (Myanmar), Malaysia, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Indonesia, Borneo, and the Philippines. Based on Nicholas De Fer’s map of Asia, the map renders the region in detail offering both topographical and political information with mountains beautifully rendered in profile. The Island of Singapore is shown but not labeled. Bali (Baly) and Lombok (Lombock) as well as Batavia are identified. Most of the Great Sunda Islands as well as the Lesser Sunda Islands, which were largely unexplored well into the 19th century, are mapped speculatively. Depicts a fairly narrow India and a misshaped Taiwan. This map originates from ‘A New Sett of Maps both of Ancient and Present Geography’ by E. Wells.

Condition: General age-related toning, minor wear. Blank verso, please study images carefully.

Dimensions: 54 x 44 cm.
