Map of the island of Rosingeyn, from the collection of Artus Gijsels.


The island is subdivided into the nutmeg beds EA through N, but there is no key. The numbers noted indicate the number of 'souls', i.e. the number of slaves that were deemed necessary to work the nutmeg plantation in question.

Just off the coast near L, is an island.
