Title : Carte d'Asie Dressée pour l'instruction. . ..
Map maker : DELISLE, G . / BUACHE, Ph. / DEZAUCHE, J..
Date : Paris, J.Dezauche, 1819.
Size : 19.5 x 25.0 inches. / 49.5 x 63.5 cm.
Colouring : In original o/l colours.

Description :The map is a rare updated version of the Delisle-Buache map of 1762. Detailed map of Asia with inset map of Siberia but now the east coast of America with the "Nord-Ouest" passage deleted. Buache engraved a new plate for this map.
The map is of interest for the use of East Sea, the sea between Korea and Japan, here called "Mer de Corée ou du Japon.". Interestingly in his 1762 edition he uses "Mer de Corée".
Buache based his map 1762 edition on the important 1723 map by L'Isle, however Buache separates here the legendary "Isle de Jeso" from the mainland by "Dé Tessoi". Now in this 1819 edition he completely reworks the region and the island is called "I.Chicha ou Jesso" and he ads "I.Tchoka ou Sagalien" in much more detail. Also he incorporates the Strait of Tartary, which was discovered in 1809 by a Japanese, Mamiya Rinzo. The Russian navigator Nevelskoi in 1849 definitively established the existence and navigability of this strait .

Philippe Buache de la Neuville was born in Neuville-en-Pont (France) on 7th February 1700 and studied at the Académie des Sciences, where he won the first prize for architecture in 1721.
He subsequently joined the Ministry of the Navy, where his drafting skills enabled him to concentrate on cartography. In 1729 he became geographer to the king, then geographer in the Académie des Sciences, successor to his former teacher and father-in-law, Guillaume Delisle (1675-1726). He pioneered a new form of theoretical geography and, in 1755, was appointed Professor of Geography.
More than a copyist, Buache was an academic geographer who researched his material thoroughly, relying on the most up-to-date information from voyages of discovery. He was the first geographer to recognize the important concept of the watershed and it was this that led him to make a number of deductions, some correct, some not.
Buache was trained under the geographer Guillaume Delisle, whose daughter he married, and whom he succeeded in the Académie des sciences in 1730. Buache was nominated first geographer of the king in 1729. He established the division of the world by seas and river systems. He believed in a southern continent, an hypothesis which was confirmed by later discoveries. In 1754, he published an "Atlas physique."
His nephew, Jean Nicolas Bauche (born La Neuville-au-Pont, 15 February 1741 and died Paris, 21 November 1825), continued his business and was also a geographer of the king.
Condition : A very good copy.
