Description

Detailed map of China, from the English edition of Louis Le Comte's Memoirs and Observations . . .

The map provides a fine image of China and the Island of Korea (separated only by a narrow channel). The Great Wall is shown, as are 45 capital cities and all the Jesuit Residences.

Other annotations includes a note regarding the many Jesuit Churches and Houses in Tumkim and Cohcinchina, the island where St. F. Xavier died, a stone monument concerning Christianity dug up in 1625, etc.

The map is quite scarce on the market, this being the first example we have seen offered separately for sale, without the book.
