INDIAN ARCHIPELAGO. East Indies Sarawak Kingdom Philippines. WELLER 1863 map

Price: £97.99

TITLE/CONTENT OF MAP: 'The Indian Archipelago'

The map shows the Kingdom of Sarawak, a state in Borneo established by Sir James Brooke in 1841 by receiving independent kingdom status from the Sultanate of Brunei as a reward for helping fight piracy and insurgency. The Brooke dynasty ruled Sarawak for a hundred years and became famous as the "White Rajahs". Its statehood and identity as a sovereign country was first recognised by the United States in 1850 and then the United Kingdom in 1863. In 1888 Charles Anthoni Johnson Brooke, the successor of James Brooke, accepted a British protectorate, which it remained until 1946, when the third ruler Charles Vyner Brooke ceded his rights to the United Kingdom.
