The Molucca Isles

The First English Map of the the Moluccas

Rare English map of the Moluccas, published by Jonas Moore in London.

The map appeared in Moore's A New Geography. Many of the plates in the work were engraved by Herman Moll, who had moved to London in 1678 and had not yet begun publishing under his own name. These are among the earliest known maps engraved by Moll. Burden credits Moll's first map as being his work for William Berry, also in 1681.

Rarity

The maps of Sir Jonas Moore are very rare.

AMPR / oldmaps.com lists no examples of the map on the market in the past 30 years.

This is the first example of the map we have seen on the market in more than 20 years.
