Kaart Der Bandasche Eilanden c.1818

$ 35

Attractive early 19th century coloured Dutch map of the Banda Islands, the only source of nutmeg and mace in the world up to the end of the 18th century. The map was originally engraved by Cornelis van Baarsel and his son, with a coastal view engraved by A.L. Zeelandeer. The map was published in 1818 in an atlas covering the Dutch overseas colonies, the atlas included nine maps of the Dutch East Indies (Indonesia), one of Surinam, one of Curacao and one of Guinea. This was the first atlas to cover the Dutch East Indies after the territories were handed back to the Dutch following the defeat of Napoleon at Waterloo in 1815 and the end of the British administration of Java under Stamford Raffles in 1816.
