Large folding map advertising the routes of the Java-China-Japan Line.

The Java-China-Japan Line was a Dutch shipping line operating the Southeast Asian waters. The JCJL began passenger services in 1902, and by the time of the publication of the present map had some 13 ships in operation on the routes. Three of the ships had been newly commissioned (the Tjinegra (1931), the Tjisadane (1931), and the Tjibadak (1929)) and are proudly advertised on the verso of the map, together with images of the smoking room, dining room, and ‘two-bedded’ staterooms.
