Description

A Rare Variant!

Rare early map of China, published by Martineau du Plessis in Paris.

The map is printed from a copper plate originally engraved by Petrus Kaerius (Peter Vander Keere) Johannes Cloppenburg's Atlas Sive Cosmographie in 1730.  This state of the map has been extensively re-worked for Martineau du Plessis's Nouvelle Geographie. Most obvious are the change in the title (to the French spelling of China) and the modification to show Korea as a peninsula, not as an island.

Rarity

This is the first time we have offered the map for sale in more than 20 years.
