Reproduction of a beautiful mid-17th century sea chart of Java Island by the famous Dutch cartographer Jan Jansson also known as Johannes Janssonius (1588-1664) that was originally published in his five-volume sea atlas Atlantis Majoris Quinta Pars Orbem Maritimum in 1657. One of three folio-sized maps of the three largest Indonesian islands in the atlas, the others being Sumatra and Borneo. This edition was published by Peter Schenk (1661-1711) and Gerard Valk, engravers and booksellers of Amsterdam, who acquired the copper plates of Jansson’s in Atlantis Majoris 1694 and began to produce Jansson’s maps with their imprimatur.
