¤ Published in Hondius' editions of the Mercator Atlas from 1606 onwards, showing the Indian subcontinent, the Malay Peninsula, Siam and Cambodia, China and the Philippines, and parts of Sumatra and Borneo. Many of the place names reflect Portuguese activity throughout the region. The decorative detail includes a large sea monster and an oriental junk in the Bay of Bengal. One of the most interesting and unusual features of the Southern Malay peninsula is its dissection in two, the southern part becoming an island just south of Malacca where it is separated from the rest of the peninsula by a large north-easterly channel.

From his famous Atlas Universel . This atlas was one of the most remarkable world atlases ever produced, anticipating the International Map of the World and being the first atlas to show the entire land mass of the world on a uniform scale.
Supported by the fortune of his parents and assisted by his brother, Jean-François, Vandermaelen built a spacious geographical Institute in 1829, in which he installed a map-drawing section, a library and a museum. He published one of the most remarkable world atlases ever made: a world atlas with ca.400 maps on a uniform scale of ca. 1:1,6 million. This work, which appeared in 1827, was far ahead of its time but its appearance could only be justified by the unparalleled zeal of its author.
This atlas was also the first to be made totally with lithography, carried out by Henri Ode, who applied a new technique, especially designed for the Atlas Universel. Koeman: Vdm 1. Phillips 749, Sabin 43762.
