Description :A general map of Tibet together with 9 regional maps. The first accurate cartographic depiction of Tibet available in the western world.
Jean Baptiste Bourguignon d' Anville (1697-1782), French cartographer. Compiled over 200 maps. This map is from his most important work Description de la Chine, by P.du Halde and published in 1735. The principal cartographic authority on China during the 18th century. (Tooley)
D'Anville used maps prepared by Jesuit missionaries and commissioned by Emporer-Kanyx, who in 1708-16 ordered a surveying of the country.
Delisle introduces much new information: he indicates the correct course of the Tsanpo, the great river of Tibet which crosses the Himalayas and flows into the Bengal Gulf, he replaces Tache Linbou with the more important nearby town of Gegace [Shigatse], and identifies several new ‘countries,’ such as the kingdom of Tacpo, east of Lhasa, and those of Bramson [Sikkim] and Pary [Phari] to the south.
Lada, M.2.
Condition : Fine condition, with some light water staining, maps are folded as issued. Set of 10 maps, the detail maps about 405x280mm.
