Derived from Rochette’s original in 1782, this edition was published by William Faden after the Battle of Muizenberg, which led to British rule in Southern Africa.
‘The Dutch Colony of the Cape of Good Hope, by L.S. de la Rochette’, engraved and published in 1795 by William Faden, royal geographer to George III. The first edition of this map appeared in 1782, and was updated after the Battle of Muizenberg (a fairly small skirmish, actually – the British lost only two or three dead), following which the British took control of the Cape from the Dutch, remaining in charge until 1961 (apart from a brief Dutch renaissance in 1804/5).
