Comments A magnificent collection of nearly all the major printed maps of the region from the fifteenth to the twentieth century. The earliest cartographical data on Southeast Asia comes to us from the second-century Alexandrian Claudius Ptolemaeus, whose treatise Geographia held sway throughout the early Renaissance. The work outlines a projection of the spherical world upon a flat surface. For Asia, Ptolemy divided the continent into twelve parts, the eleventh devoted to Southeast Asia, and in the fifteenth century, his work was used to create the first printed maps of the region. The collection boasts examples from the Rome (1478), Ulm (1482), and Sylvanus (1511) editions of Ptolemy. With Columbus's discovery of the New World in 1492, and da Gama's voyage to India in 1498, Ptolemy was found wanting, causing cartographers to produce new maps based on better information. The first such "modern" map of Asia was produced by Waldseemüller for his 1513 atlas. The collection includes this in its reworked form by Lorenz Fries, who himself is responsible for the first modern map to deal with Southeast Asia as a cartographic entity, representing a definitive break from Ptolemy. By the end of the 1520s Portugal, from its Malacca stronghold, had cornered the lucrative spice trade. To protect their monopoly, the Portuguese suppressed cartographic information concerning the Indies, and map publishers had to glean any new information from the accounts of intrepid travellers, such as Pigafetta, whose memoir of Magellan's voyage was used by both Münster for his map of Asia (the first depiction of the continent) of 1540, and by Gastaldi in his 1548 map of Southeast Asia, depicting Singapore for the first time. Six years later, Gastaldi engraved another map of Southeast Asia, published in Ramusio's Delle navigioni et viaggi, which drew upon the latest logs of the Iberian explorers and, with his map of 1561, it represents an improved model of the area that would influence both Mercator and Ortelius. The birth of Dutch cartography is closely linked with the country's emergence as a nation state, its forays into the spice trade, and the weakening of the Iberian hold over the East Indies. In 1570, Ortelius published his Theatrum, the first modern atlas, containing a continental and regional map which name Taiwan for the first time. Ten years later the Dutch republic was at war with its Spanish masters and was cut off from the spice trade by the Iberian embargo on Dutch shipping. However, by the end of the century, the Dutch had repelled sustained Spanish attacks and gained a foothold in the East Indies. The endeavour was aided by Jan Huygen van Linschoten, who accessed confidential Portuguese manuscript charts detailing the trade route to the East Indies, and who printed the resulting map in 1596. This map, along with others by Lodewijcksz and De Bry, represents the end of Iberian hegemony over Southeast Asia. The beginning of the seventeenth century saw the resulting growth of the VOC, the Dutch East India Company. The period also witnessed the golden age of Dutch cartography, with the rise of the two great houses of Blaeu and Hondius-Janssonius. The collection includes some of their finest work, including Hondius's beautiful "Insulae Indiae Orientalis", Janssonius's "Indiae Orientalis Nova Descripto"; and Blaeu's "India quae Orientalis". In the second half of the century the printed sea chart became prominent. Arguably its greatest exponent was Robert Dudley, and the collection boasts four of his finest charts. In Amsterdam meanwhile, Janssonius produced his Atlas maritimus which, by 1657, included charts of Java, Sumatra, and Borneo. Where Janssonius led, many followed, including Pieter Goos, whose stunning "Paskaerte zynde t'Oosterdeel" is included in the collection. Thévenot's superb chart and three charts from The English Pilot, bear witness to the emergence of France and England as challengers to the Dutch dominance of cartography, although all four maps are based upon the Portuguese and Dutch manuscript material. The Dutch still held sway in the archipelago at the dawn of the eighteenth century, but their grip on the cartographic field had been loosened by the growth of map-making in France, England and Germany. In 1726 Dutch cartographic secrecy surrounding the East Indies came to an end, when the confidential VOC charts were published by Valentijn. The collection contains several fine examples of these charts. For the remainder of the century, and the whole of the next, the output of these three nations was prolific and the collection reflects their increasing dominance of cartography. Of particular note are Moll's large folio maps of the East Indies of 1717, and Mannevillette's chart of Java.
