Title : Sumatrae et insularum Locorumque nonnullorum circumiacentium. . ..
Map maker : JANSSONIUS, J..
Date : Amsterdam, 1660.
Size : 16.5 x 20.5 inches. / 42.0 x 52.0 cm.
Colouring : Original colours.
Description :Fine chart depicting the Island of Sumatra and the southern coasts of Malaysia from Quedo to Johore.
North is orientated to the left of the page.
Singapore is probably identified just to the south of Johore as Senasur. Little interior detail is given but the coastlines, settlements and principal coastal features are identified.
Earlier Sumatra had been mistaken for the Island of Ceylon or Taprobana. The name Taprobana used since the time of Ptolemy for the Island of Ceylon, had been applied to Sumatra from the fifteenth century, after a misunderstanding by the Italian traveller Nicolo di Conti. Conti dismissed the idea that Ceylon was Taprobana and so identified Sumatra as the mythical island described by Eratosthenes, Strabo, Pliny, Ptolemy & Cosmas.
Subsequent geographers, historians, cosmographers and thinkers alike became engaged in a controversy over its proper identification. Considerable confusion existed until early in the 17th century.
An attractive early map, one of the few early Dutch maps to focus on the region. Decorated with title and scale cartouche, compass roses and a vessel.
