Description


An exceptional and very rare 1928 wall map of the state of Pahang, a large state in Peninsular Malaysia just east of Kuala Lumpur. This map was issued by the Federated Malay States (F. M S.) Survey and printed in London by Edward Stanford. Being of enormous size, this map describes the state in incredible detail. The focus of the map appears to be Forest Reserves, Games Reserves, and commercial estates. A number of large corporate estates are identified ranging from the Benta Rubber Estates to the Malayan Wood Distillation lands. It identified development along railroads, major roadways, and important navigable rivers.

Today Pahang is a large state in Peninsular Malaysia. It's known for its mountains, rainforests and beaches, including the white sands and coral reefs of Tioman Island off the east coast. The state capital, Kuantan, is a major seaport. In the west, the gentle hills of the Cameron Highlands include resorts, tea plantations and terraced farms, and the village of Fraser’s Hill, which resembles an English hamlet.

This map is rarely on the market. The OCLC identifies only 2 institutional holdings.

CartographerS


Federated Malay States Survey (1922 - 1945), better known as the F.M.S. Survey Department, was established in the early 20th century to produce detailed surveys of British Malaya and the Straits Settlements. The survey department had offices in most major Malayan ports, including Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Penang (Georgetown), and Malacca. They were the first official survey organization to publish detailed scientifically produced maps of the region.
