Onrust, Batavia’s key island

W. Heydt was a German engraver serving the VOC. In 1744 he published “Allerneuester geographisch- und topographischer Schauplatz von Africa und Ost-Indien….” in Nürenberg. This book contains many drawings pf Batavia, where Heydt lived between 1737 and 1740 as well as 41 engravings which he made for the Governor-General Valckenier.

VOC ships could not harbor at Batavia port. Hence the Dutch located all maritime activities on this tiny island just of the coast of Batavia.
