Click image to zoom old map image



Title : Asia noviter delineata . . ..
Map maker : BLAEU, W..
Date : Amsterdam, c.1650.
Size : 16.2 x 21.9 inches. / 41.1 x 55.7 cm.
Colouring : Coloured.

Description :From 1633 the members of the Blaeu family were official cartographers to the United East India Company and, as such, had access to the most up-to-date cartographic information concerning this area. Indeed, Dutch explorers and merchants returning from the East with new information were obliged to turn their maps and charts over to the Blaeu workshop so that alterations could be made or new plates engraved.
However, this map contains many errors, showing how old plates continued to be used long after the information on them had proved to be wrong.
This "carte à figures" map is decorated with columns of figures on either side depicting the native manners of dress, and nine city plans and views at the top.
Japan is shown accurately unusually with Korea as an elonged island.

Condition : Some marginal discolouration of paper due to previous framing. Printer's creases in lower left and right hand corners. Small hole (5mm. in diamater in center part of map) Creases and center fold under laid for protective reason.
