Fine map of China, Korea, Taiwan (Il.Formosa) from Joan Nieuhof's comprehensive work about China. The map is embellished with sailing ships and junks and a title cartouche enclosed in a garland of exotic fruits and held aloft by cherubs. The map shows the track of the Dutch Embassy of the V.O.C through China.
Nieuhoff was the official chronicler & draughtsman for the first embassy to China by the Dutch East India Company (VOC), then at the height of its power. His record of the trip, became the most important source of information about China for Europe in the 17th century. The map itself is nearly void of details, as the embassy was not allowed to travel in the interior. They traveled from Canton to Peking by way of rivers and canals, and this route is filled with place names, starkly contrasting to the rest of the map.
In place of details, Nieuhoff filled the map with little vignettes of the indigenous animals.
