  • Very Early Map of the Island of Borneo – from De Bry’s account of Van Noort’s Voyages – c1602

    Very Early Map of the Island of Borneo – from De Bry’s account of Van Noort’s Voyages – c1602

    An original and rare copper engraved map of the island of Borneo (Borneo Insula) and its neighbouring Islands published by Theodore De Bry. First issued circa 1602 from Olivier Van Noorts journal of his Voyages around the World.

    Engraved by Benjamin Wright shows Van Noort’s ship in the bay at Brunei. The vessel is surrounded by local boats. Van Noort’s account mentions upwards of one hundred native proas clustered around him as he set anchor on 1st January 1601. His account of the area is only second to Pigafetta

    Van Noort voyage was primarily to set to against the Spanish. It was a mistake as the Spanish came after him and his flagship was sunk and quite a few of his crew captured and executed. When he returned to Rotterdam he had only 48 crew out of 248 and one ship left the Mauritius. But he was the first Dutch circumnavigator and he did have this map.

    504 pages (a big year) followed by 100 pages of business advertisements to the rear and more at the front and the odd one inserted. And a very good map of Queensland folded at the front.

    Original card cover and bound in half leather with gilt titles and lines – to a very good standard. Also protected in a sturdy red cloth covered solander case with label to spine. The almanac is in very good condition.

    The Thornes Map of Queensland is a beauty. Many gold and mineral field marked including Old Eastern River, Cape River, Peak Downs, Cloncurry Goldfields and The Great Australian Copper Mine, Dee Copper Mine Raglan and the great fields at Charters Towers, Palmer and Gilbert Rivers. The exploration tracks of Sturt and the Jardine Brothers are marked. Stradbroke Island is one island as this is well before a storm that created two islands in 1896.

    The section on important events mentions a strike on 18th November 1878 of seamen working for ASN on account of an attempt to introduce Chinese seaman to the line. It was an extremely hot and stormy summer and a number of lives were lost to heatstroke. In the advertisements we are pleased to see John Petrie – Builder and Contractor.

    Also sections on the Gardening Calendar; Extensive “Who is Who” of everything Queensland; Sailing Directions; a short chapter on “Progress in the Colony”. The voluminous period advertisements make good reading for those that are interested in the history of business in Queensland.
