1754/1818. Hand-coloured engraving, plate number “67”, artist, title in English and French and text in plate above and below image, 27.3 x 39.7cm. Slight foxing, partially trimmed margins.

Text reads “J. van Ryne delin. Publish’d according to Act of Parliament. London, printed for Rob’t Sayer opposite Fetter Lane Fleet Street.” Held in Libraries Tasmania, and British Museum, noting that “plate 67” was added to the 1818 issue. In 1619, the Dutch captured and razed the existing city of Jayakerta (“glorious fortress” in Sundanese) and built the walled township of Batavia (present day Jakarta), which became the capital of the Dutch East Indies and the centre of the Dutch East India Company’s trading network in Asia.
