Title : L'Asie En Plusieurs Cartes Nouvelles. . ..
Map maker : SANSON, N..
Date : Paris, l'Autheur, 1652.
Size : 10.2 x 7.3 inches. / 25.8 x 18.5 cm.
Colouring : In original o/l colours.

Description : Apparently an unknown variant, maybe a state between 1652 and 1662. The title-page bears the date of the first edition (1652), the address of the second edition (B) misspelt “Cioistre” instead of “Cloistre”, no mention of second edition and no dedication to Foucquet.

The maps are: L'Asie, Turquie en Asie, Anatolie, Sorie, Turcomanie Georgie Commanie, L'Arabie, L'Empire du Sophy, L'Empire du Grand Mogol, Presqu'Isle de l'Inde deca la Gange, Partie de l'Inde audela du Gange, Royaume de la Chine, La Grande Tartarie, Description des Isles du Japon, Les Isles Philippines, Les Isles Molucques, Les Isles de la Sonde, and Ceylan et les Maldives.
Furthermore the atlas includes 10 additional maps of antique Asia engraved by Lhuillier and AB de la Place.

The first atlases published by Sanson, a pioneer in atlas production and in making cartography a science, were quarto atlases of the continents. Most of the maps are engraved especially for these works and are not reductions of larger previously published maps. The first edition included 17 maps, this edition includes 10 additional maps of antique Asia dated 1654 and 1655. One of them “Asia minor” by Nicolas II Sanson and engraved by AB de la Place, is one of the few maps produced by Nicolas II Sanson who died in 1648. Since Sanson was the first French cartographer to have access to Jesuit surveys just then emerging from China, his work provided fresh information.

Some of the 27 maps in this atlas are maps of Japan and Korea, the Philippines.
The map of Arabia depicting Bahrain spelt “Baharem” (The Gulf in Historic Maps 1493-1931, edited by Sultan Bin Muhammad Al-Qasimi Phd : 1652, N. Sanson, L’Arabie Petrée, Deserte, et Heureuse).

Condition : Contemp. full vellum. Title page, [104] pp. and 27 maps.
Small loss of vellum at lower right of first board. Minor staining. Overall in excellent condition. Inscriptions in brown ink on blank leaves and vellum.
