According to the Leupe catalogue (NA), the original title reads Plan van de Loge zoals bevorens geweest is.

The chart must have been drawn after 1687, the year in which commissioner Van Reede tot Draekenstein visited the lodge and implemented several changes. It will also have been drawn before 1743, as this was the year the chart was brought over from Bengal.

Notes on reverse: No. 13 [probably the number of the item in the OBP volume] Behoort by de overgekomen Brieven en papieren van Bengale etc. 1743, 3 stuks, N 1 / 585 [ranged right above the aformentioned text] / 593 c / [in top right corner].
