    RLAR 045 ASI ORTE166109 (LF04)
    Description:

    One of the earliest published maps of the East Indies, superbly decorated with a pair of frolicking mermaids, galleons, sea monsters, a crest and decorative title within a strap work frame. Issued in Abraham Ortelius's Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, the first 'modern atlas' in which all the maps were issued for the first time in a uniform size and format.

    Ortelius's map of the Indies improved upon the positioning of the all important Moluccas (the Spice Islands), than those of Gastaldi 1548, Ramusio 1554 and Forlani 1565. His map of Asia and this one, are the first published works to definitely map the island of Formosa (Taiwan) and to identify it by that name.

    Much confusion resulted from the incorrect mapping of the Indies, after the travel accounts of Marco Polo’s Divisament du Monde (Description of the World) were revealed in 1299 and specifically the account of his five month stay in northern Sumatra, which was incorrectly scribed. Marco Polo’s relative positioning of Java Grande and Java Minor, was to confuse cartographers for the next three centuries. The tip of Terra Australis Incognita is named Beach, which can be traced back to the incorrectly scribed accounts of Marco Polo's travels, which mistakenly corrupted Polo's mythical kingdom of Lochac to Boeach, which was then shortened to Beach.

    Technique:

    Stock Number:
    ASI 1606 HOND 002 (RW05)
    Description:

    Superb map of the East Indies by Jodocus Hondius, showing the latest cartographic knowledge following the revelations contained in Linschoten’s Itinerario 1595, which revealed previously secret Portuguese information of the East Indies. The map’s decorative features include two ornate strapwork medallions, sea monsters, an ornamental scale of distances, a Chinese junk and a galleon. In 1604, Hondius bought the plates of Mercator’s atlas and to compete against Ortelius’s Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, added thirty-seven new maps of his own, including two of Southeast Asia.  

    Following Houtman’s voyage to the Spice Islands in 1595, there were numerous further Dutch voyages to the Indies and the fierce competition of the spice trade led to infighting amongst Dutch merchants. The States-General resolved the situation in 1602 by creating the Dutch East India Company (VOC), giving it a monopoly over trade in the East for twenty-one years and crucially, the right to govern autonomously. The VOC charter not only set the conditions on which the monopoly was given but it also emphasised the ongoing importance of trade to the Dutch economy: ‘We let it be known that as the prosperity of the United Netherlands is principally a result of our shipping trade and commerce that has undergone praiseworthy increases from time to time…east of the Cape of Good Hope and in and beyond the Straits of Magellan, representatives of the aforementioned Company shall be authorised to enter into commitments and enter into contracts with princes and rulers in the name of the States General of the United Netherlands or the country’s Government in order to build fortifications and strongholds. They may appoint governors, keep armed forces, install Judicial officers and officers for other essential services so to keep the establishments in good order, as well as jointly ensure enforcement of the law and justice, all combined so as to promote trade.’

    The effectiveness of the States-General’s policy for VOC trade quickly resulted in the loss of Portuguese control over the spice trade in the Moluccas which was further weaken by the numerous attacks on Portuguese bases in India, Sri Lanka, Malacca and Macau.

    Description:

    Important C18th chart of Hong Kong based upon the surveys made from the original surveys and soundings in 1754, 1759, and 1760 by Alexander Dalrymple. This edition of Dalrymple's map was published by Jean-Baptiste D'Apres de Mannevillette in his later editions of Neptune Orientale, the most highly regarded pilot for the Eastern trade for both French and English ships. The chart is dedicated to Alexander Dalrymple hydrographer to Britain's East India Company. Mannevillette was one of the few cartographers that had the admiration of the the difficult, Alexander Dalrymple. The two collaborated and shared information with the aim of updating current navigational charts. 

    The chart extends from just West of Macao, shows the Bocca Tigris in the Pearl River and the islands around present-day Hong Kong, with Lantao and Lamma both identified. Importantly Hong Kong island is shown and identified as Fanchinchow.  

    Mannevillette was one of the most eminent and influential cartographers who was instrumental in raising the standards of available printed sea charts for the eastern trade in both France and England in the C18th. From about 1735 Mannevillette had set about collecting detailed charts of the known coasts from Africa to Australia and which with the financial support of the Comapne des Indes and the Academie des Sciences, published his ground breaking sea atlas, Le Neptune Oriental in 1745.

    The first issue comprised twenty two charts and was superior to any previously available and consequently quickly became the indispensable atlas for ship owners, captains and pilots engaged in the Southeast Asian sea routes. The second edition was expanded to 56 charts and included 
    this chart of Hong Kong. 

    Mannevillette had applied his advances in navigational techniques 
    to the charts which he had refined in the intervening 30 years.

    Description:

    Large and important C18th chart of the South China Sea, the busiest waterway in the east, published in Mannevillette's, Le Neptune oriental (Oriental Pilot), the most highly regarded pilot for the Eastern trade for both French and English ships. The chart is dedicated to Alexander Dalrymple, who was the first Englishman to extensively explore, chart and collect detailed information of the seas and coasts of Borneo, the Philippines and China on behalf of the East India Company. He proposed the possibilities of establishing a direct trade with the East Indies and China from a British base in Borneo with the Chinese junks that annually visited the area . His plan was to bypass  the corrupt Chinese officials in Canton and the prohibitive port  costs limposed on British ships.

    Mannevillette was one of the most eminent and influential cartographers who was instrumental in raising the standards of available printed sea charts for the eastern trade in both France and England in the C18th. From about 1735 Mannevillette had set about collecting detailed charts of the known coasts from Africa to Australia and which with the financial support of the 
    Comapne des Indes and the Academie des Sciences, published his ground breaking sea atlas, Le Neptune Oriental in 1745. The first issue comprised twenty two charts, superior to any previously available and consequently quickly became the indispensable atlas for ship owners, captains and pilots engaged in the Southeast Asian sea routes. The second edition was expanded to 56 charts which Mannevillette had applied his advances in navigational techniques which he had refined in the intervening 30 years.  

    The 2nd issue of this chart, identified by the plate number 52 at top left (the 1st issue is numbered 30). Both issues are rare, as the atlas was usually used at sea and would have been discarded once more up to date charts were made in the early C19th onward. In 1775 d'Apres issued the second edition of Le Neptune Oriental expanding it to 63.
