The David Parry Southeast Asian Map Collection

The David Parry Southeast Asian Map Collection constitutes 254 maps dating from the 15th to 19th centuries. The majority of the maps were originally published in atlases and books, which may no longer be available in their original edition or as a complete entity. The collection contains maps produced by prominent cartographers of that period, including Gastaldi (c.1500–1565), Linschoten (1563–1611), Bellin (1703–72), Blaeu (1571–1638), Ortelius (1527–1598), Mercator (1512–1594), Hondius (1563–1612), Münster (1488–1552) and de Bry (1528–98), as well as several printed editions of Ptolemy maps, which include some of the earliest references to Singapore and the Malay Peninsula.
