Description:

Excellent reference on the early mapping of the Malay Peninsula and Borneo.

Maps of Malaya and Borneo: Discovery, Statehood and Progress showcases
the extensive map collections of His Royal Highness Sultan Sharafuddin
Idris Shah, Sultan of Selangor, and Richard Curtis. The combined
collections contained more than 160 maps dating from the 1500s to after
Malaysia’s formation in 1963.

The collections include early Portuguese, Dutch, French and English
maps and these include: nautical charts, maps of the interior, maps from atlases,
encyclopaedias, maps showing economy, culture and communications and
urban maps. Extensive captions highlight key features of the maps,
provide insights into their creators and explain the context in which
the maps were produced and used. 

The presentation of the collections is preceded by an authoritative
text on the mapping of Malaya and Borneo. This
text explains the quest for accurate maps, illustrates how maps
showcased the changing economic, cultural and political dynamics within
Malaya and Borneo and describes the evolution of mapping techniques as
well as providing insights into the work of leading cartographers.
