The cartouches are painted in strong and a somewhat impressionistic way. Varnish is used for the dark shadow areas to highlight the colors. Clearly from an show-piece atlas produced for a wealthy merchant or nobleman, in so-called Fürsten kolorit. Maps published in Germany during the 18th century are usually in body colors, with uncolored cartouches.
Rare in this condition and colors.
Prepared by Johann Matthias Haas (1684-1742) who produced a number of continental and regional maps for Homann Heirs in the middle years of the 18th century. The coastal waters of Japan remain a little haphazard with Hokkaido -Terra Efo, Yedso ou Yesfo- still attached to the mainland. Tibet, which is named, dears the alternative title of Dalai Lammae .
The splendid title cartouche features a seated female courtesan, with a smoking incense burner on her lap, to the right an Amazon plucks an arrow from her quiver, while some sort of saurian lurks in the background. This edition with extra Avec Priv added to title across the top border.
Reference: Sweet, Asia 131.
