Very detailed map of Indonesia, taken from "Atlas van Nederlandsch Oost- en West-Indie", prepared by doctor I. Dornseiffen, and published by published by Seyffardt's Boekhandel, Amsterdam.
The general map with title and in the corners four inset maps of the Netherlands, Suriname, Antilles and CuraÁao. Including most southern tip of the Philippines and a tip of Northern Australia.
Map taken from one of the most detailed atlases of the former Dutch East Indies. Dornseiffen published his "Atlas van Nederland (1861), "Nederland en Zijne Overzeesche Bezittingen (1863) and "Atlas van Nederlandsch Oost en West IndiŽ" in 1884, 1894 and 1909.
The atlas was intended for use at home and high school. The atlas ranks among the school atlases of the Dutch Indies by Havenga and van Gelder and Stemfoort & ten Siethoff.
Curiously Koeman only mentions only third, fourth and fifth editions. This item from the third (and earliest known) edition. A uncommon and detailed map.
