Maps and Charts Preview
Gordian Gaeta Collection by Peter Geldart
 
2 Sep 2017
 
Peter Geldart, a long-time collector of antique maps of Asia, is a director of the Philippine Map Collectors Society (PHIMCOS). He recently curated and wrote the catalogue for Mapping the Philippine Seas, an exhibition of 166 charts of the Philippine archipelago from the early 16th to the 19th centuries. 
 
He is also editor of the PHIMCOS journal, and is now helping the HKMM to  catalogue a collection of maps and charts of China and Hong Kong lent to the museum by Gordian Gaeta. Among the chosen maps in the collection is a chart by Alexander Dalrymple which is the first to show and name Hong Kong island.

Trip to Guangdong Province

The first-ever overseas excursion organised by HKMM was held on 30 June - 1 July 2015. A two-day exploration to the western arm of the Guangdong province - Yangjiang, and Guangzhou - participating Friends of HKMM members and HKMM staff visited two museums. On Day 1, the group of 16 visited the iconic Maritime Silk Road Museum of Guangdong, situated on the Hailing Island along the Ten Miles Silver Beach, where Dr. Bill Jeffery provided an overview of the shipwreck Nanhai No. 1. On Day 2 the group travelled to Guangzhou to the Guangdong Museum. Overnight accommodations were arranged at the resort-like hotel on the Hailing Island.
