This finely detailed and beautifully engraved map of South East Asia shows the Kingdom of Siam (Thailand), the Malaysian Peninsula and the islands of Borneo, Sumatra and Java. This was the domain of the Dutch East Indies Company (V.O.C.), which made its headquarters in Batavia (Jakarta) on the island of Java. Ship routes from Batavia to Siam are noted. The map is based on the Jaillot/Mortier map that was derived largely from the accounts of the French Jesuit mission to Siam in 1685-86.
