Return to Previous Page
Description

Description

Description: Antique map of South East Asia titled ‘Malay Archipelago’. Old map of South East Asia depicting the Malay Archipelago including Sumatra, Java, Timor, Borneo, Celebes, Moluccas and surroundings. This map originates from ‘The Times’ atlas. 

Artists and Engravers: John George Bartholomew (22 March 1860 – 14 April 1920) was a British cartographer and geographer. As a holder of a royal warrant, he used the title ‘Cartographer to the King’; for this reason he was sometimes known by the epithet ‘the Prince of Cartography’. Bartholomew’s longest lasting legacy is arguably naming the continent of Antarctica, which until his use of the term in 1890 had been largely ignored due to its lack of resources and harsh climate.
