65/5793 [Surinam]. Muller, J.E. (1846-1902). "Kaart van de rivier Marowijne. In 2 bladen op de schaal van 1: 500000. Naar de opname van de Commisie benoemd by besluit van den gouverneur van Suriname dd 28 en 31 Augustus 1861 (...) tot regeling der grensscheiding tusschen Nederlandsch en Fransch Guiana." Manuscript map on 2 lvs. after J.F.A. CATEAU VAN ROSEVELT, pen and ink and blue and red wash, 55,2x 56,7 and 56,2x56,7 cm., signed "Julius E. Muller 30 January 1866".

- A few marginal tears; paper sl. brittle.

= A very rare manuscript map of the Marowijne river on the border of Surinam and French Guyana, copied after the manuscript map by J. Cateau van Rosenburg (The original manuscript of this map (also 1:500.000) is kept in the Dutch National Archive). Originally surveyed by the Dutch-French border commission in 1861 after the border dispute between the colonies of Surinam and French Guyana. One of the members of this commission was Johan Cateau van Rosenburg (1823-1891), a military land surveyor and later important administrator in Surinam. Until 1879 he undertook several surveying expeditions on his own initiative on the rivers of Surinam with J.F.A.E. van Lansberge to modernize the map of Surinam. This manuscript map was bought in 1880 by the Dutch government, especially for the reliable issuing of concessions, mostly gold. In 1882 the map was published after the drawings by W.L. Loth. The draughtsman of our map, Julius E. Muller (1846-1902), was a selfmade man, who started his career at the age of 15 in 1862 as an apprentice at the 'Departement der Koloniale Vaartuigen' (Department of colonial vessels). In 1864 he became third engineer and under the watchful eye and with help of his superior at the department, the forementioned Cateau van Rosenburg, he started his studies in surveying, in which he became qualified in 1870. (Van Ommeren, Julius E. Muller - Om het goud van Suriname. From Emancipatie, 1863-1963. Biografieën, p.67-81). Muller is nowadays chiefly remembered for his photographs (see lot 4858). Eventually he became an important politician and developed i.a. the first direct mail line between the colony of Surinam and the Netherlands and later became involved in the gold industry. This map was probably an assignment given by Cateau to Muller to practice his drawing skills as surveyor. What is interesting are the markings of each campsite of the expedition with the dates, starting from 10 September and ending at the headwaters of the boven Marowijne on 18 November.
