Description:

Scarce map showing the territories in eastern New Guinea that were to be annexed by Queensland in 1883 and in Vietnam by France. Also shown are the areas affected by the eruption of Krakatoa between August 26. In 1883, the Colony of Queensland attempted to annex the southern half of eastern New Guinea, but the British government did not approve. When Germany began settlements in the north a British protectorate was proclaimed in 1884. The protectorate, called British New Guinea, was annexed on 4 September 1888. France undermined Vietnam’s independence in a series of military conquests between 1859 and 1885. In 1887, the entire country formally became part of French Indochina. Krakatoa culminated in a series of massive explosions over August 26, 1883, which were among the most violent volcanic events in recorded history with at least 36,417 being killed. The explosion is considered to be the loudest sound ever heard in modern history, with reports of it being heard up to 4,800 km from its point of origin.
