A first edition of this important map of Asia, by Guillaume Delisle with his address "Rue des Canettes". . Title cartouche by: N. Guerard, inv. et fecit.
This map is typical for Guillaume de L'Isle cartography where the coastline of north eastern Siberia between Novaya Zemlya and Terre de Yeco is left blank. Notable for depiction of Hokkaido, here called "Terre D'Yeco" and joined to the mainland.
With "Terre de la Compagnie". DeLisle is important as the first "scientific" cartographer who incorporated the most current information on exploration and topography into his maps.

The map is of interest for the use of Mer Orientale, the sea between Korea and Japan.

Guillaume De L’Isle’s first printing shop was established on the "Rue des Canettes pres de St. Sulpice" in Paris. This address appears only on editions of maps dated 1700-1707. This map dated 1700 is one of the few examples of maps and globes who were printed at the "Rue des Canettes" shop. Most examples of his work were issued from the address where De L’Isle moved in 1707, the "Quai de L’Horloge".
A map of Piedmont dated 1707 informs us that by that date De L'Isle had moved to the "Quai de l'Horloge à la Couronne de Diamans". The latest date on a map found bearing this address is January 1708.
In early 1708 De L'Isle changed the sign over the shop to "à l'Aigle d'Or", the golden eagle.
In 1718 he ads his newly received title "Premier Geographe du Roy" to his address.
