Description

This is a superbly illustrated collection of historical maps of Malaya and Borneo, dating from the 1500s to World War II. Maps of Malaya and Borneo showcases the extensive map collections of His Royal Highness Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah, Sultan of Selangor, and Richard Curtis. The combined collections contain more than 150 maps ranging from what may now appear to be inaccurate medieval maps based on the workings of Ptolemy to maps given to troops during World War II. The collections include early Portuguese, Dutch and French maps, nautical charts, maps of the interior, maps from atlases and encyclopaedias, maps of the Malaysian states, maps showing economy and infrastructure and city maps. Extensive and enlightening text highlights key features of the maps, insights into their creators and the technical developments that enabled them to be made.show more
