A most attractive and decorative map of Japan and its near neighbor Korea by Vincenzo Coronelli. An elaborate central title cartouche garlanded with intertwined flowers and dedicated to the Rev.de Fontaine of the Society of Jesus. The delineation of Japan is on the standard Martini model although Hokkaido, then known as Yedo is shown as part of Tartary.
With a large Chinese vessel and a write-up underneath "the ship was apparently capable of traversing the distance of the 220 miles between the cities of Osaka and Nagasaki in only 12 days (Walter 43).
A larger rather westernized oared barge fills the ocean between Korea and the Islands with remarks on the distance between Osaka and Nagasaki.
The remarkable Vincenzo Coronelli (1650-1718), encyclopaedist, geographer, inventor and Doctor of Theology, was citizen of the Republic of Venice. He was also one of the most prominent mapmakers and publishers in Europe of his day.
The map is of interest for the use of East Sea, the sea between Korea and Japan, here called "Oceano Orientale".
The map is the product of the late 17th century Venetian cartographer, Vincenzo Coronelli.
A decorative title cartouche appears bottom left in the form of a banner supported by playful winged mermaids and cherubs.
