The map is of interest in showing Korea as a curiously shaped island and in revising the shape of the three main Islands of Japan. A re-issue of Janssonius' map with the new imprint Amstelodami Vendibilis apud P.Schenk et G.Valk.C.P..
Notable for its detail of Hokkaido, the first printed map to use the detailed manuscript charts of Maarten de Vries from his voyage to the region in 1643. Spanish stories on gold- and silver islands east of Japan induced the eager-for-expansion governor-general Anthonie van Diemen to the decision to send Abel Jansz Tasman (1639) and Maarten de Vries (1643) to this region. Both of them found no gold but de Vries surveyed the islands to the north of Japan, especially the sweeping curve of southern Hokkaido. Importantly, the expedition also touched upon the southernmost islands of the Kuriles.
The northern Japanese island of Hokkaido and Sakhalin to the north are shown joined -it was not until La Perouse's expedition in the latter years of the 18th century that this misconception was rectified. Equally the southern Kuriles islands of Iturup and Urup are identified as Staaten Eyland after the Dutch Estates General or Parliament and Compagnie's Land after the Dutch East India Company.
