An attractive gold highlighted old colour example of De Witt's 1670 map of the northeastern part of Asia, China and Japan.

Size: 43,5 x 55 cm. (on sheet: 53 x 61,7 cm.).

Condition: Very good condition. A crease line parallel to centrefold, minor nicks and tears to edges, with some minor loss. Show through on verso.

The map extends from the Island of Formosa, the Ganges and the eastern part of the Caspian in the South to Yesso, Tartaria, Siberia and Molgomzaia in Russian Asia in North. The Great Wall of China is shown, along with a nice representation of Japan and the mythical lands to the north. Korea is reduced to a small peninsular, reflecting the lack of western knowledge of Korea at that time. Russia is truncated with no Kamchatka peninsula and Yedso is shown according to the voyages of De Vries. The mythical Chiammay Lacus is shown with its five major rivers.

Strapwork title cartouche heightened in gold with two putti and a compass rose embellish the map.
The map was engraved by the distinguished Amsterdam engraver Jan l'Huilier.

Item will be sent by airmail with online tracking.
