Het Eiland Sumatra hoe ten asnsien van Malacca en D'Eilanden Java en Borneo gelegen.

A rare coloured decorative copper plate map of Sumatra, Malacca and Western Borneo, illustrating the narrative of Diego Lopez de Sequeira from Vander Aa. Includes decorative cartouche and vignette. Vander Aa was one of the most prolific compiler's of early voyages of travel and exploration from the 15th, 16th and 17th Centuries. His maps illustrate regions for which there were often no contemporary maps or for which only manuscript maps survived to illustrate these often very rare narratives. Extreme detail paid to small islands surrounding bigger land masses as well. Nice example in beautiful full color. Different colors to seperate the major land masses of Sumatra, Borneo (only South Western portion included), Java (only North Western tip included) and Malaysia (which is described as Malacca here).
