Very scarce map of a military expedition carried out in or shortly after 1703 by commander Govert Knol from Surabaya to the Interior of Java, where Pangerang Depati Anom was arrested. This was the young crown Prince who wanted to succeed his deceased father, the Javanese Emperor. The Dutch East India Company interfered with this. Eventually there would be years of wars break out on Java.
Vertical fold as issued, strong and clear impression on heavy paper. Excellent condition.
