A rare sea chart, including a map of Singapore and the Straits of Malacca and Banca, which appeared only in the second and enlarged edition of Mannevillette's Le Neptune Oriental.

Important early chart of the East Coast of Sumatra, the eastern portion of the Strait of Malacca, and the coast of Malaysia, showing strait Banca and island of Pulo Timon. Singapore is identified (I.de Jatana ou de Saincapour).

The present chart was drafted by Jean-Batiste de Mannevillette (1707-80), and engraved on copper by the master engraver Guillaume De la Haye. Mannevillette apprenticed under the great royal cartographer Guillaume De L'Isle. He then joined the maritime service of the Compagnie des Indes, eventually attaining the rank of captain. Upon his return to Paris, Mannevillette was appointed as director of the Dépôt des Cartes et Plans de la Navigation des Indes. In 1745, he published the first edition of his sea atlas of Asian waters, Le Neptune Oriental. The high quality of Mannevillette's charts won him the acclaim of both mariners and academics alike, and he was admitted as a fellow of the Academy of Sciences. He published a second, heavily revised, edition of the Neptune Oriental in 1775.

Jean-Baptiste-Nicolas-Denis d'Après de Mannevillette (1707–1780) was a French sailor and hydrographer.

D'Après de Mannevillette was a captain for the Compagnie des Indes, and in this position, he charted the coasts of the East Indies and China. He published the Neptune Oriental for the first time in 1745. It was a major cartographical achievement and a practical resource for navigators sailing to the Indian Ocean and Asia. The 1775 edition encompassed the majority of the known world.

D'Après de Mannevillette's access to up-to-date sources of information – such as explorer´s narratives - and his eagerness to constantly update the cartography of his maps, enabled him to produce some of the most accurate charts of the 18th century.
