Description :This is Guillaume de l’Isles third map of the continent of Asia, showing the improvements in knowledge made during the first quarter of the 18th century. Arabia has been revised, with more correct topography. Thanks to Jesuit surveys, improvements have been made in the internal details of China and the peninsular. India has been expanded to its correct size. The Northeastern part of the continent remains the least understood. Hokkaido is portrayed as part of the mainland (Terre d’Eso) and Urup in the Kuril Islands appears as an oversized island off the coast. (Terre de la Compagnie). Marco Polo’s Islands of Gold and Silver appear in the Northern Pacific.
The sea between Korea and Japan is referred to as the "Mer de Corée". "Sea of Korea". There is extensive and interesting detail of central Asia for this early date, showing many Kingdoms, including Nepal, Bhutan, Assam and Tibet.
Condition : Generally good condition the top and bottom margin has been reinforced at the centerfold slight crease at top center and on very small hole (only seen when held to light) in the 'Golfe de Bengala area.
