Description: Navigational chart. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 11.5 x 14.75".

Comments: This chart shows the Tapti or Tapi River in Central India and the Indian coast along the Arabian Sea, into which the river empties. The waterway was once known as the River of Surat, or here Rievier van Suratta, after the city that lies along it. One of the main rivers in India, the Tapti runs east to west, and the map features rhumb lines and soundings intended to aid the navigator. The map is in good condition with minor overall wear and foxing. François Valentijn (1666-1727) was a Dutch minister and naturalist who worked as a missionary in the East Indies. He is best known for his "Oud en Nieuw Oost-Indiën," a monumental history and description of the East Indies and its surrounding lands that remains a significant primary source today. This map is a fascinating document of Dutch travels in the region.

Wow - This is amazing - the book arrived in the post this morning! It was quicker for your book to get from New York to New Zealand, than the two books I ordered from Australia at the same time! Many thanks for that - I know it was sent by cheapest post (at my request) but somewhere along the line I got lucky. Love the book by the way - and it arrived here in such perfect condition I could almost think no one has even touched it before... - Anne W.
