Old, antique map of Indian Ocean (North) by J.B. Elwe. 1792

Jan Barend Elwe (florished 1785-1809)

The Amsterdam bookseller and publisher, J.B. Elwe, was probably of foreign origin. His activities in the book trade date back to 1785, a date found on an atlas.

J.B. Elwe's contribution to atlas and map production was slight. All he did was print some maps from old plates after deleting their name and adding his address.
