Map of Batavia


Map of Batavia

Brandes, Jan

Map of Batavia with a German key.

The map has been copied from an older chart dating from prior to 1743-45. In those years the castle wall between the 'Diamant' and 'Robijn' bastions was demolished. Nor does the map feature the Lutheran Church, which was completed in 1749. Brandes later added these in pen.
