Fine early map of Bali, published in Amsterdam by Jacob Van Schley.
The map includes a key for important place names and the palaces of the King.
The map is based on a map published at the end of the 17th century, created by Willem Lodewijcksz, a member of Cornelius de Houtman's pioneering voyage to the East Indies in 1595-97. Most of the subsequent maps of Bali produced by cartographers over the next two centuries are based on the Lodewijcksz map.
Jakob van der Schley was a skilled draftsman and engraver who operated out of Amsterdam and had strong ties with the Hague. He was trained by Bernard Picart and his style resembles that of the elder man. Van der Schely was known for intricately engraved portraits and frontispieces. He signed most of the plates used in the Hague edition of the Abbe Prevost's Histoire generale des voyages.
