Map maker : La PEROUSE, J-F..
Date : Paris, 1797.
Size : 19.3 x 13.2 inches. / 49.0 x 33.5 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured.

Description :Five plans on a folio sheet. These charts include Cheju Do, Korea (Quelpaert Is.), Kume-Shiwa, Okinawa (Kumi), and Ullung Do (Dagelet).
Including one of the earliest maps of Dagelet ( as known to the Europeans) now Ulleungdo (also spelled Ulreungdo is a South Korean island in the Sea of Japan (East Sea). Ulleungdo is about 120 km (75 mi) east of the Korean Peninsula. In 1787 French navigator, Calaup de la Perouse found Ulleungdo and named it ´Dagelet´.
In 1789 British explorer James Colnett also found Ulleungdo and named it ´Argonaut´. The latitude and longitude of Ulleungdo surveyed by la Perouse and Colnett were different and two separate islands appeared in European maps. Thus, these maps showed two Ulleungdo Islands. Later Phillip Franz von Siebold who stayed in Japan for seven years went back to the Netherlands and published maps of Japan applying the name of Takeshima to Argonaut and Matsushima to Dagelet.

The other four charts depicting other islands - "Quelpaert (Chejudo)", "Hoapinsu", "Botol", and "isle of Kumi". The dates in these charts illustrate how the French frigates navigated - they saw a part of the isle of Botol on 3rd May 1787, then the isle of Kumi on 5th May, the isle of Hoapinsu on 7th May, a part of the isle of Qeulpaert on 21st May and lastly they discovered Dagelet on 27th May.
Condition : Very good condition.
