Attractive view of the bustling harbour front and market in the Javanese port of Bantam. The port of Bantam, situated on the tip of Java facing Sumatra, was at the centre of the often violent competition between the British and Dutch trading empires in south east Asia. This detailed print shows the town, the different areas for selling different goods – spices, furniture, fruit – the harbour and the customs office. Taken from Niehoff’s China.

Copper engraving. Uncoloured. Fine condition. Good wide margins. Size: 30.5 x 21.5 cm.
