This is a lovely map of the island of Java with parts of Sumatra, Madura, and Bali by Jacques Nicolas Bellin. According to its title, it depicts the most recent discoveries and observations of the region in Bellin’s time. The map was ordered by the Dutch East India Company, thus the map’s name below the image is in Dutch, while the title in the decorative cartouche is in French.

The map is highly detailed, with pictorial representation of topography along with written descriptions. Toponyms name cities, ports, bays and all the provinces into which Java was divided at the time. Depth soundings are provided for all shorelines of each island. A compass rose from which rhumb lines radiate indicates that the map is oriented north.

The Dutch East India Company was founded in 1602 to help the Dutch in their war with Spain, and to organize and control to the extent possible their maritime trade in the area of the Indian Ocean. The company was prosperous for nearly two hundred years and played an important role in Dutch trade in the East Indies till it was dissolved at the end of the 18th century.

Condition: This map is in A condition on clean hand-laid paper with full margins.
