Title : Huquang, Kiangsi, Chekiang ac Fokien..
Map maker : VALK, G. / SCHENK, P..
Date : Amsterdam, 1720.
Size : 18.0 x 20.4 inches. / 45.8 x 51.8 cm.
Colouring : Original colours.

Description :A reissue of Janssonius' map of south east China, with wash colour and uncoloured cartouches.
The map is based on the maps of Martin Martini, themselves based on Chinese sources. The Chinese developed their own school of mapmaking from as early as 2000 B.C. and had produced superior maps considerably before the European cartographic industry matured in the sixteenth century. An atlas of finely detailed maps of the Chinese Empire by Chu Ssu-pÍn was compiled around 1311-12.
Jesuit Father Martin Martini, who worked in China from 1637, translated Chu Ssu-pÍn's text into Latin and redrew the maps, possibly incorporating new information he had gathered on his travels around the country. This work, the Atlas Sinensis, was carried by Martini back to Europe in 1650, and was then incorporated into the Blaeu Novus Atlas.

Condition : In very good condition. Brown spot in right hand margin. No text on verso. Very small part in center of map underlaid due to oxidation of green paint.
