CARTE DE L'ILE DE JAVA

Code: M4318

Cartographer: CHATELAIN Family

Date: 1719

Size: 38*87 cms

Full Title Carte de l'Ile de Java: partie Occidentale, partie Orientale, Dressée tout nouvellement sur les Mémoirs les plus exacts.

A stunning example of Henri Chatelain's important 1719 map of Java. Covers the island in full as well as adjacent parts of Sumatra and Bali. Offers beautiful engraving and extraordinary detail throughout, noting rice plantations, mountain ranges, grazing lands, forests, and in many places, elephants and gazelle. The previously unknown southern shore is mapped both correctly and in considerable detail. Also shows some offshore reefs and other dangers. The volcanic island of Krakatau, here identified as Cracatao, appears in the Strait of Sunda between Java and Sumatra.

Bottom left inset plan of the city and port of Batavia, then the center of Dutch East Indian Company.

Probable that Chatelain used cartographic information on Java from Hadrien Reland, a Dutch scholar and philologist who composed a number of works on the Indonesian Archipelago in the early 18th century.
