Description:

Finely colored example of this important early map of China, Japan, Korea and the Northwest Coast of America.

Shows the Great Wall, Korea as an Island and a badly misprojected Japan. The annotations beneath the land sailing craft suggest that this is an indigenous mode of transportation. On the Northwest Coast of America, the annotation references the Tartar hordes which inhabit the region and names Cape Fortuna, Anconde Island, Costa de los Tacbaios, Costa Brava and Alcones.

Includes an interesting depiction of eastern and western sailing craft, a sea monster and other decorative and fanciful features. One of the most sought after maps of China.
