Description

An inset plan of Batavia and clearly indicated rice fields, mountains, forests, towns in profile and even elephants suggest the wealth of detail found on this map. Modeled on Hadrien Reland's important Dutch map of a few years earlier, the superb topographical detail is complemented by drapery style cartouche and side panels which provide a full French text description of the island, its topography, history, flora, fauna and inhabitants.
One of the finest large-scale maps of Java, giving good information regarding the V.O.C. settlements, each indicated with a flag in national 3-colour.
