Title : Verkenningen Genomen in de Wijnkoops-Baai..
Map maker : Dutch Geographical service ?.
Date : Jakarta, 1849.
Size : 39.4 x 22.8 inches. / 100.0 x 58.0 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured.

Description :Large so-called Blue-back chart of a part of Java, dated 1849, showing the results of local surveys in the period 1835-1849.No publisher mentioned (probably the Dutch Geographical service), 1849. Mounted on blue paper, the edges lined with linen. This has been done around the date of publication and may be as published.
It shows shows the section of Java around Batavia. With insets of coastal profiles, and inset maps of Merak Bay (explored by lt. Staring in 1841), Bantam Bay (after the trigonometrical survey of 1841), Wijnkoops-bay (after the trigonometrical survey of 1837), and Japara harbour.
The insets often have their own title, and make clear that this map intented to give a topographical overview of the surveys done in the years prior to publication. Thus a very early detailed source on the exploration of Java.
A small line in the left margin indicate that these maps form part of a seris: the line reads "Eiland Java no.4". It must have been printed in a small number: the extreme detail indicates a scientific purpose.
Very rare.

Condition : Some marginal dampstaining, entering a corner of the image too, never too distracting. Traces of use, but a very good copy

ID: 25753
