[3110]

Southeast Asia/ 1687 Wagner Map of Southeast Asia (Malaya, Thailand, Singapore) Stunning map of Southeast Asia with baroque surround illustrating scenes from the lavish court of Arakan. "Ein Theil Von Indien Auserhalb Des Ganges. / Die Halb-Insul von Indien Auser Dem Ganges." Size of the sheet: 30 x 35 cm., good condition, only little brownish, small restoration on below centerfold. A fine example of Johann Christoph Wagner's highly decorative 1687 two-part map of Southeast Asia. Essentially two maps on a single sheet, the left hand map focuses on Indochina from the mythical lake of Chiamay to the Gulf of Siam and from the Indian Ocean to the Chinese island of Hainan (Aynan). It includes the modern day Kingdom of Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam (Tonquin) and Burma. The right hand map continues the scope of this chart southwards along the Malay Peninsula as far as the Straits of Singapore, Covering the modern day country of Malaysia and Singapore, as well as adjacent parts of Burma, Thailand, and Indonesia. The map names Ayutthaya (Aiothia), Bangkok (Bangkock), Cambodia (Camboia), the Khmer (Kemois), Malacca, Ihor (Jahor), and Singapore (Sincapura). By far this map's most striking feature is its elaborate South German Baroque surround illustrating scenes from the lavish court of the Arakan Kingdom. Today Arakan is an abandoned if spectacular ruin (Mrauk-U) in a remote part of Burma. In the 17th century it was one of the largest and most beautiful cities in the world. Due to its proximity to the Bay of Bengal, Arakan or Mrauk-U developed into an important regional trade hub, acting as both a back door to the Burmese hinterland and also as an important port along the eastern shore of the Bay of Bengal. It became a transit point for goods such as rice, ivory, elephants, tree sap and deer hide from Ava in Myanmar, and of cotton, slaves, horses, cowrie, spices and textiles from Bengal, India, Persia and Arabia. The city also traded with non-Asian powers such as Portugal and then the Dutch East India Company of the Netherlands. The Dutch East India Company (VOC) established trading relations with the Arakanese in 1608 after the Portuguese fell from. The VOC established a permanent factory in Mrauk-U in 1635, and operated in Arakan until 1665. At its zenith, Mrauk-U was the center of a kingdom which stretched from the shores of the Ganges river to the western reaches of the Irrawaddy River. Most of what is known today of Arakan is drawn from the journals of Friar Sebastian Manrique, a Portuguese Augustinian monk who resided there from 1630 to 1635. This map was engraved by Melchior Haffner and prepared for issued in Johann Christoph Wagner's 1687 Interiora Orientis Detecta, Oder Grundrichtige und eigentliche Beschreibung aller heut zu Tag bekandten grossen und herrlichen Reiche des Orients.
