During the period 1726-1755, when Johannes van Keulen II was in charge as Hydrographer of the V.O.C., the first charts for the navigation to the East Indies and in the Malaysian Archipelago were engraved. Such charts printed or in manuscript are sometimes found as additions to copies of the Zee-Fakkel .
They mark the beginning of what was to become the pilot guide for the East Indies. Several of the charts in the sixth part of the Zee-Fakkel were engraved after the manuscript master-models in the archives of the V.O.C. Van Keulen printed sheets with a system of rhumblines and latitude scales for the use of sailors. On these sheets newly explored coasts could be drawn in.¤
