Title : A New Map of the East Indies taken form Mr. de Fer's Map of Asia..
Map maker : WELLS, E..
Date : London, 1703.
Size : 14.6 x 19.5 inches. / 37.0 x 49.5 cm.
Colouring : Coloured.

Description :

Striking scarce regional map of India and the East Indies, extending from Southeast Asia, the Philippines, China and Tibet in the East to India and the Maldives in the West, centered on the Kingdom of Siam and the Malay Peninsula.

This beautiful map covers all of Southeast Asia from Persia to the Timor Island, inclusive of the modern day nations of India, Ceylon, Thailand, Burma (Myanmar), Malaysia, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Indonesia, Borneo, and the Philippines.

The map features a large title cartouche showing the coat of arms of the Duke of Gloucester. This, like many other Wells maps, is dedicated to Prince William, Duke of Gloucester and son of Queen Anne of England, who, when this map was being prepared, was a student at Oxford. Engraved by Sutton Nicholls and published by T. Bonwicke for the 1712 edition of Edward Wells' Atlas, “A New Sett of Maps both of Ancient and Present Geography”.

Edward Wells (1667 - 1727) was an English mathematician, geographer, and classical scholar based at Christ Church College, Oxford. He was chosen to tutor the young Prince William, the sickly son of Queen Anne who died at the age of 13 just after this map was issued.



Condition : In good condition, this map that was originally issued folding , has now been flattened.
Also, the left corner (1” x 2 ½”) has been added professionally in facsimile.
