Description :A fine map of China, Korea and Taiwan.
Jacques Nicholas Bellin (1703-1772) was one of the most important and proficient French cartographers of the mid-eighteenth century. He was appointed the first Ingenieur Hydrographe de la Marine, and also Official Hydrographer to the French King.
In smaller format, he issued the Petit Atlas Maritime (1764), which contained 580 charts, as well as maps to illustrate l'Abbe Prévost's Histoire Générale des Voyages (1746-1757). Bellin also produced a substantial number of important separately issued maps, particularly reflecting continuing discoveries and political events in the Americas.
His maps and charts were finely engraved and produced, and set a high standard of accuracy.

The map is of interest for the dual-naming of the sea between Korea and Japan, here called "Mer de Corée"
Condition : With foldings, as issued. In good condition.
