Title : China Regnum..
Map maker : SANSON N. / Zunner D..
Date : Frankfurt am Main, 1679.
Size : 11.5 x 8.9 inches. / 29.3 x 22.7 cm.
Colouring : Hand colouring

Description :A rare edition of Nicolas Sanson's map of China and Korea. A very rare German issue (with text in Latin) of Nicholas Sanson’s important map of China, Korea, and the northern Philippines. Korea is shown on this map (on earlier 16th and 17th century maps is sometimes was entirely missing) but it is portrayed as an island instead of as a peninsula.
The map was first made by N. Sanson in 1657 and then copied in other editions. This rare version is published in Frankfurt, by Joannes Zunners, in his ´Die Gantze Erd-Kugel´1679.
This edition can be distinguished from other editions by the orientation of the word "Septentrion" at the top of the map. In the 1679 Zunners edition, the word is bifurcated before the last 4 letters.
The map was re-engraved for this edition, and there are a few notable differences from Sanson's map of 1657.

Condition : In good condition. Map likely washed, backed with antique carrying paper. Very nice hand colouring, golden accents and some elegantly added decoration. Light stains to top margin.

ID: 83113
