Fascination toward antique maps has led to the formation of Bartele Gallery in 2009. Located in the hip Kemang area, South Jakarta, the gallery provides a home to numerous rare maps, such as the Taprobana, a mid-16th century black and white copper engraving of Sumatera Island with drawings made by German cartographer, Sebastian Münster. Dr. David Parry, a soil scientist and author of The Cartography of the East Indian Islands, is the esteemed curator for Bartele Gallery whose topographic endeavours span an illustrious 25 years in Indonesia. But not only maps, Bartele also displays a wonderful collection of antiques, prints, old books, and tribal art, with some artwork dating 500 years ago. The gallery opens its second store in Langweer Friesland, Netherlands in 2014, also covering a broad range of historical maps and prints with focus particular on Friesland.
